Late December 2014

We had the whole family together for Christmas again this year. Meg came from Hawaii. She says she does not appreciate the cold weather and we should visit her instead. We got set up for Christmas. Here is our tree:

Xmas Guests

Wink wanted snow for Christmas. Our November snow was gone so we went for an adventure into the mountains for Christmas Eve. We drove up to Franconia Notch and stopped to visit her brother and her new nephew at the Chalet. We found snow in spite of the rain.

When we got home we made cinnamon rolls for Christmas Breakfast.

I must have been very good this year because Santa graced me with some B and B: Bourbon and Beast. It seems to be a very Moeller thing to do as I hear that my siblings have had similar experiences this year. Here is my Bourbon and Port tasting…

MMMMMMMMMMMM – Bourbon and some good port hiding

The turkeys have been visiting us on a regular basis. They aren’t very afraid of us. Here is Mark feeding the turkeys.

Feeding Turkeys

Meg enjoys feeding the turkeys too. Click here for a video of Meg feeding the turkeys. Meg realized that the turkeys outweighed her by at least one hundred pounds. Fortunately the turkeys respected her. Meg took the camera with her the second time she feed the turkeys.
