The stockings are hung by the chimney with care - except Santa will be bringing Kate's for her first Christmas.
I just put Lulu on a plane to New York City. She will be gone for 5 days - she is on a committee at the NY Times to select the American Librarian Awards. The presentations will be at Carnegie Hall. Lulu is excited to meet the other committee members - including Sweet Caroline Kennedy - yes the President's daughter.
While in the city - several family are going to visit with her and stay over a bit. First it is cousins - Georgianne - Ruthann - and Kathy. The will go to a show together and shop. Then Keith and Liz will taking Lulu to the Garden to see Duke play the University of Washington in basketball.
Before Lulu left - we rushed out to by a real Christmas tree - first time in years. Last time we had one - sister Lori got us one for our last Christmas in the chalet in Tamaqua.
Harry is home alone for 5 days.
