The Holidays - 2002


I spent Thanksgiving in Connecticut with my daughter Christine, her husband John, her children Geoffrey and Erin, and her father Bud.

It snowed shortly after arriving in Connecticut. The kids and I, along with friends Kelly and Sean Flanigan, made a lovely snowman. Look closely and you will see a baby snowman, too.

The family dog is a poodle named Special. She really enjoyed the snow. Unfortunately, the snow stuck to her legs in clumps. She had to get a bath to get the snow off of her.

Christine did most of the cooking on Thanksgiving Day. Erin used that time to paint her Poppy's face as well as her own.

I helped Christine set the table and get things ready for the feast.

The next day, John made guacamole for his incredible nachos.
