Good 39º raining Christmas morning!
Wow, got some storm yesterday. WINDY and rain!!! Leaves blowing everywhere! Rain all over all the windows! Creek has water in it, finally!
This video is amazing... I puffed up with pride.. cleaned out my eyes!

Throw Back Thursday....
Me, 1950, with my favorite doll, a gift from Santa....
And... I still have her... she's sitting in a chair that belonged to Jerry that hung in the garage forever and I finally painted it..
This was a Dionne Quintuplet doll. She is all made from plaster with rubber strings inside to let the legs and arms and head move. The eyes open and close. I read somewhere that they are worth about $300 each now.
Yesterday I went to the post office to pick up a package. It was the DVDs of the Ed Sullivan Shows. Will be fun to watch. Then stopped at the market. A zoo~!! Parking lot was insane! Got home and made deviled eggs (Brian's fav) and organized the dips, veggies, chips, and wine I was taking to Jean's. Jen's mom made Christmas Eve dinner... Food was awesome, so great to see Marie (Jen's cousin) and Jimmy (Jen's brother). Pictures later.....

National Pumpkin Pie Day
Today is a very special day. It's National Pumpkin Pie Day. It's one of America's favorite pies. Pumpkin pie is steeped in holiday tradition. The peak consumption period for pumpkin pie begins at the fall harvest, and lasts all the way through to the Christmas meal and dessert.
One might wonder why have National Pumpkin Pie Day on Christmas Day. Unfortunately, we have yet to find the creator of this day. So, the timing remains a mystery. However, we are thankful for this special recognition, and will certainly have a little pumpkin pie with our whipped cream today
