Setting up the macbook is going well

Setting up the macbook is hitch-free so far.  Unfortunately I have to get up at 3 am for work... and it's now 10:18 PM.  Tomorrow is going to be pretty rough.

Santa came early!

I got a new toy for the kitchen. Wanted a good rice cooker for years
and finally found a deal on one. It has a timer and warmer so ready
made rice when you get home.

Perfect meal for the coming great depression.

Dinner with our German Neighbors

Had a dinner party at our neighbors house last night. Had a great
german dinner followed by some warm german wine. Emily got this egg
for Saint Nicholas day from them. It's a candy covered plastic egg
that has a collectible toy inside!

Decorations too!

Stairs are decorated, snowflake window covers for the door and the
tree up in the nook that you can see from the road.

Trees up!

We put up our 7' tree and it looked puny in the new house. Quick trip
to Lowes 50% off sale and a new 9' looks perfect and we could finally
use all of our ornaments.

Tree is up


Santa took some time off at his shop to visit the Walmart here in
Hickory. Emmy told him she wanted a racetrack for Xmas.
