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

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
