Highlights of the Holidays

Happy New Year!

Those busy days between Thanksgiving and January 1st passed in flash. We didn't get our Christmas tree decorated until late in the season and never did get those lights strung outside. Nonetheless, the weeks were full, fun and loaded with all variety of family gatherings, tasty food and music.

Here's a look back in pictures from December 2010 and today, the start of a brand new year.

  1. Wonderful highlights! Nothing better than friends, family and good food. Happy New Year!

  2. Looks like wonderful times. I loved what Santa did to the tree. Beautiful! And fun!

    Our tradition is greens and black-eyed peas as well. With some cornbread and cheese grits thrown in.

    Here's to a wonderful year! Happy New Year, Kate.

  3. Balloons on the tree? That's a new one to me, and I like the whimsy. Looks like a wonderful start to the new year.
