The only thing missing is my brother and his fiance, Sarah. Thank goodness for Skype as we'll be on the computer with them in cyber-space tomorrow! :)
As you can see, it certainly is a busy (and sometimes stressful) time of year, but it is so worth it to be surrounded by friends and family (whether in person or on the computer!). I hope everyone has a very happy holiday and remembers what's important this time of year.

Between all that eating, we checked out the kids art exhibits, stopped by the Obama/Biden booth, looked at all the cows, pigs, rabbits, goats, sheep, turkeys, chickens and chicks. I even held an adorable baby duck...
One of my favorite things we did this year was milk a cow...yes, I actually milked a cow!! It was pretty cool...
I was surprised by how much milk I got out. I thought it would have been harder to get the 'technique" right.
All in all, it was a fun day. Cold, but not raining, so that was good! I am exhausted now and ready for a nap.

On the windy beach!
The water was so rough, red flags were out that said "No Swimming"
I had the BEST fish sandwich at this grill!
We climbed to the top...and it was windy!
Thanks to these guys, we can fly around the world!
During set up.
Lots of traffic.
Dinner with the manufacterers.

Waiting in line at a casino.
Staying out until 4 am, three nights in a row takes a toll on you!!!
