TV weather folks were predicting two snow storms passing over us with a total of 6 inches of new white. (NOAA said 1 to 3 in each storm). Then TV folks said the BIG storm heading for NYC "stole" the moisture out of our storms. Kinda pretty here, but no need for a snow blower tonight. I hope the predictions for our friends to north are as wrong as ours.
Christmas always celebrates the past, brings fond memories of past times together; and brings SOMETHING new. This year youngest daughter and her guys joined us. And we all had a great Christmas. Marianne decided last year that we would have a blue and white themed tree this year. She started planning this tree last year, buying some things and filling it out this season, so we had lots of NEW in our Christmas!
New toys for the boys!
And a new experience - roasted marhshmellows.
A new scent for Marianne and
a new laptop case for me (quickly adopted by Zoey)!
I joined the Header Challenge team in November. We post a new header each week on a suggested theme. Imac is the founder and head of the team. The members vote for best header and the winner gets the gold. The links above will take you to the other participants.

I am retired, married to a smart, talented lady who once thought we computer people were geeks and now is one of us geeks. I have a long time interest in photography. We live in Maryland, about 50 miles from Washington, DC.
My main camera is a Nikon D3100 with two zoom lenses (18-55 and 55-200).
