Sewanee fog was prevalent in the morning hours of Christmas. Here is the live tree my parents bought and my mother decorated. Let me tell you something about this tree: it was very heavy, and quite difficult to single-handedly drag across the driveway and into the hole my parents dug for it...but I am strong and made it happen.
I always liked this gingerbread decoration, and birds are always good too.
My mother and I are firm collectors of rocks and shells. Here is her latest menagerie.
Note the snail.
Before our present opening we had cinnamon rolls, and I had a cup of tea.
