Happy New Year!!

   What a wonderful Christmas we had this year. We all gathered at my sister, Rochelle's home for the Christmas feast and a Yankee Swap. Rochelle and her husband, Mark did a great job on the food. Just look at this turkey!
Nicely done...
Everyone brought a little something for everyone to share. What a great time.
