Holiday in Review: Hello Christmas

Whew
We just got back from a fine holiday.
The Christmas part was good. Here are some photos...


First, Mrs. Robot and I exchanged gifts pre-Christmas as we tend to do. The highlights were a new iPod for me and a donkey calendar for her.
10:51am


Our friend Mark sent us this awesome framed print of that Star Wars band thing. You know. That thing.
8:04pm


Then we flew down to the "dirty south" (as they say) to spend Christmas Eve with family. My niece was super precious.
4:16pm


On Christmas eve, Mrs. Robot and I found some wigs.
9:01pm


Christmas Day we drove up to visit more family. Along the way we stopped at a truck stop. I had eggs, biscuits, and sausage gravy.
2:33pm


We had dinner at my uncle's house on Christmas night. They had some leftover barbeque and we put some delcious Castle Sauce on it (a local favorite).
8:30pm
There were also deviled eggs.



At Mrs. Robot's family homestead we played with her mom's new brown puppy, Rosie. She is a good dog, but her ball chasing skills needed some work. I tried to run her as much as possible. She prefers to sniff things than chase balls.
4:19pm


Mrs. Robot's mom bought the grandkids a Wii. The grandkids are maybe a bit too young for it as I thought they were getting easily frustrated. So, us grown-ups got a lot of time on the Wii.
11:18pm


While visiting Mrs. Robot's family, she and I had lunch one day at Biscuit King - the king of biscuits (if I am to believe the name).
1:55pm


Mrs. Robot and I took great pleasure in reading the World Book Encyclopedia's that her mom still has (1980 edition). The entry on computers was oddly spot-on. You'd be able to buy things via the "network" from stores. There would be issues of security and privacy. They'd be all linked togther. Dang World Book! Gimmie some lottery numbers!
3:04pm

Also, her mom had a commenorative Knoxville World's Fair teacup.
4:55pm




Then we left for holiday part II...
8:25am


nice presents! cute niece! (when did she become not a bebe?) can't wait for part II!
