Christmas Eve

So glad to have my old blogger back.  In case you'd like to catch up what we were up to while I couldn't blog here go here.

Hubby's mom turned 80 this year and while in New Orleans we celebrated at a fancy restaurant on Christmas Eve..
Here, hubby and I are waiting to leave (walk) to the restaurant.

Ms. Hubby's Mom in her festive hat from my SIL.  Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the food (four course meal).  The pecan pie was really, really good.

 All of us (excluding Jim).  The funny story...Nancy (SIL #1) wanted to get a photo all of us in front of this certain Christmas Tree.  It was a small walk from the restaurant to a hotel none of us were staying at.
None of the photos (from phones & point and shoots) turned out just right and Nancy wanted to get a photo of all of us in front of a Christmas tree the next night too.  It soon became the joke of the trip.

On our walk back to our hotel a great deal of fog came rolling in off of the Mississippi.  It was so thick you could see the moisture in the lights.  One of my favorite parts of the trip was the solo saxophonist playing O Holy Night under a light in the fog.  It was really moving and stood out above the other noises of the night.  I regret not stopping and video tapping him.
