Last weekend My Honey and I enjoyed the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra's Christmas Concert.
Our Cincinnati Music Hall is one of the oldest and most beautiful in the country. Above you see the back of Music Hall. We parked in the old WCET garage so had to walk around to the front of the building to enter. Music Hall is recently been renovated and the pedestrian bridge from that garage has been removed.
Of course, I didn't take images during the concert even though I would have loved to share them with you. The concert was fabulous.
Catherine, our daughter, gave me these tickets for my birthday present. Wow, what a lovely and loving gift. Thank you, Catherine!

Today's images are from our Sons of Norway Lodge Christmas party, Julefest.
It was great fun!
How do you celebrate the holidays?

Here's just the beginning of this season's first snow. There was more to come before we were ready to go out for the evening. It came just in time for us to drive to the Sons of Norway Julefest (Christmas Party).
We're home now as I write this. This much snow is no problem for us and the car we drive. The problem is those crazy drivers out there who ignore that freezy skid stuff as they zip in and out of traffic and speed down the expressway. We saw one accident on the way to dinner and another on the way home.
Tomorrow the forecast is for 40 F, so the inch or so of snow that we got will be gone.
Such is life in Cincinnati.

It's that time of the year that we see friends we haven't seen for months or even years. Today is the Sons of Norway Christmas Party and we've been asked to prepare food for the meal and items for the bake sale. So, here are two loaves of bread for the bake sale.
Kjell has made gravlax and head cheese for appetizers. I plan to take pictures at the party and will share them here. :)
How are your holiday parties going?

I spent last Friday putting together the Christmas and Hanukkah gift baskets for daughter Catherine's CPA firm clients. This year the theme was "snack time." Included are various snacks and a bottle of sparkling cider.
They looked all neat and tidy after I put them together (the first one finished is above), but earlier in the morning...
It's good to be retired and home with the family. Even the most simple things are so special!
Are you ready for the holidays?

I took these images from quite a distance away so had to crop them to make them usable. Although the picture quality isn't great, it's fun to see them.
This pup and owner had a darling routine.That pup's tail never stopped wagging as he jumped and turned. It was obvious he didn't want to stop when the music stopped.
I understand this pair are in the advanced dog dancing class.
And, finally, this pair strutted their stuff.
There was so much laughter, cheering, and applause!
This was fun!
