Catching up with Photos

This is at the Brichmere before the show started. Since we were late because of horrid traffic, weather, etc,, we sat near the back, but it's a small venue -- maybe 300 to 400 people.
Didn't get any of the National Tree, but this is the tree at the US Capitol.
The tree and the capitol -- nasty night with almost 3 inches of rain.
Sunday morning and Milo is relazing.
Mary and I had a nice late breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon and bagels.
For appetizers for dinner, Mary made a baked brie with the creative Christmas tree. Mary claims this is easy with the crescent roll dough and she cut out the tree with a cookie cutter.
Mary's netpher Matt found these cocktail napkins -- the perfect hostess gift for Mary. The photo is just one of those 1950s vintage photos
Dinner was pot roast and gravy made in the crock pot, mashed potatoes, bread that Fran brought and tossed salad with Italian dressing and blue cheese crumbles. We never got to dessert whiich was pecan pie -- very unlike us!
then it was time for presents. Each of us got a flashing red nose from Fran -- mine is on crooked!
Milo has been particularly friendly to me this time -- don't know why but he even slept next to me.

Has Milo given you a straight-on head butt yet? When you get that, it's the cat signal that you are a family member.

That's so funny you mentioned that as I DID get the headbutt. I said to Mary that Milo is shoving his head into me/my legs in an aggressive way -- not a scary thing, but it's just like a headbutt. I don't know why this time was different than the dozens of other times I saw him.
