Merry Christmas Eve from Louisiana! We woke up this Christmas Eve morning with a lovely phone call from all the family in Australia who were just celebrating Christmas!! As it was a nice, still morning outside, Zev flew his little Slo-V battery powered airplane in our backyard... Posted by Picasa

Meme thoroughly enjoyed visiting Zev's family in Canandaigua. Here she is standing in the backyard of Zev's parents house- Dave and Judy. The temperature was -15 degrees on this day and Meme is well rugged up against the cold- so rugged up that she could hardly move!!! Posted by Picasa

Meme also continued to acquaint herself with the locals... Posted by Picasa

On Saturday, December 10, Meme, Zev and Fiona ventured down to Natchitoches, home of the movie "Steel Magnolias". We took a tour through the historic places and took a picture of the actual house that Shelby lived in (Julia Roberts' character), in the movie. This house is now a quaint bed and breakfast. Posted by Picasa

We had lunch at "Merci Beaucoup", a local Natchitoches restaurant, where Zev and Fiona enjoyed Sausage Gumbo, a traditional Louisiana dish, and Meme enjoyed the Shrimp Etouffe, another typical Louisiana dish. Posted by Picasa

Meme got up close and personal to some cuddly Louisiana natives....she didn't feel like petting these little darlings unfortunately!!! Posted by Picasa

Our friends, Scott and Taylor from Montgomery, Alabama, were in town visiting family for Thanksgiving weekend, and were able to drop by and visit us last night. It was great to catch up!  Posted by Picasa

Happy Thanksgiving! We spent Thanksgiving at home, where Zev had prepared a wonderful spread, including home-made pumpkin pie and raspberry cheesecake.  Posted by Picasa

We finally found a car to replace the totalled SAAB. The PT Cruiser is stylish but not as "gutsy" as the SAAB!! Posted by Picasa

I think Zev had the most fun of all.... Posted by Picasa

Zev bought a smoke machine especially for the occasion, and we had fun flicking the porch light switch on and off, and saying "ooooo" as the kids came up the porch steps to trick or treat..... Posted by Picasa

Halloween 2005 was a fun event, and even though it was rainy and stormy that night, we had quite a few kids from the base come and empty out our basket of goodies. Posted by Picasa

We hiked through some beautiful gardens; went on a "duck tour" which is an amphibious WWII truck tour through that drives through downtown Historic Hot Springs and then goes into the water at Lake Hamilton.  Posted by Picasa

Zev and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend away in Hot Springs, Arkansas (birthplace and boyhood town of President Bill Clinton as the town folk liked to constantly remind us). The weather was perfect, and we enjoyed a hot springs bath, hot towel wrap and massage at the Arlington Hotel. Guys and Gals were separated into separate bath houses. Zev wanted to get a facial too but he might have to wait until the next time we visit Hot Springs. He did say that he enjoyed his massage by "Jimmie" with the big hands though..... ;-) Posted by Picasa
