We had a very nice Christmas and a fun visit with my parents who were very happy to spend Christmas with their three grandchildren here. Mom and I had some fun shopping together. The stores were packed. After Christmas, Hubby and my dad played a round of golf, and I gave Mom the "Tour of Mass Destruction" that she requested. I started by taking her to see my friend's gutted house, drove by the cemetery (the tombs in the ditch had been picked up, but two were still toppled ontop other tombs), then drove through the flooded neighborhoods closer to the lake that had flooded about 8-9 feet deep. We finished the tour with a stop at my next door neighbor's FEMA trailer. Mom also wanted to see what an MRE was like, but we were going to send one with them for their drive up to Tennessee to visit my sisters! Oh well, they will still be good the next time they visit.
By the way, Happy Birthday to both of my sisters today!! (yes, they are twins)
Here is a very cute Christmas card from a co-worker of Hubby's that I had to share. It's a photo card of the couple in front of their New Orleans house next do their debris pile, complete with their stinky fridge. Very cute. and as usual, click the picture to see an enlarged version.
