Merry Christmas from Me to All of You

The holidays have been great at the North Carolina Liedls for 2008. Barbara and her new cat, Leif came to visit and we have had a great time. Below are some photos of the events over Christmas eve and day. Santa was very good to all of us and I got some great toys!

Following our tradition of a movie on Christmas Eve, Barbara, Leif and I had our traditional dinner. This year of salad, steak, and, of course, green beans. Desert was some ice cream to wash down the Christmas cookies - Krumkaka!!

Here we are at the beginning with ALL the presents under the tree out in the "mountain View Room"

Note one of Jerry's gifts, a football from the Wisconsin Liedl's

Leif with one of MANY toys that he enjoyed on Christmas Eve.

Jerry's goodies all stacked up for all to see. Note Leif looking at it longinly through photos of nephews Spencer and Max Liedl's photos- handsome bruteness continues in the Liedl genes!! Check out the toys - a neat scanner (16 slides at once) and the K cars (one on left put together).

On Christmas Day a group of us celebrated with dinner at the Biltmore Estate. From the left are Bill and Ruth Gibson, Emilee Cantieri, Barbara and Me
