Christmas in Columbia, SC 2010

Amy and I went with Pete to South Carolina to spend time with Amy's family over Christmas. We had a great time and below are a few pics from Christmas day.

Chuck's dog Simon is very festive in his green Christmas sweater.

Ron and Chuck checking out Chuck's coasters made from recycled phone buttons.

Pierre is a new addition to the house of Amy's dad Ron and his wife Amy. He is a little rascal.

Flora does not mind the camera that much.

Pete doing what he is doing best - relaxing. Well earned after the eye operation of course.

The brunch table is set at the house of Amy's mom

Lots of goodies on my plate

A very nice start for Christmas morning indeed

Grandmama Georgia joined us for brunch

After a lot of work finally at the table

Well, trying hard to look unhappy

Christmas time

A few Christmas impressions from our home ready for the holidays.


The view from the dining room towards the living room

Our Charlie Brown tree on the counter between dining room and kitchen

The kitchen is clean and ready for guests

A slightly different perspective towards the kitchen

Our tree with modern ornaments in the den

The main Christmas tree in the living room, very traditional (and orderly) :-)

The warmest place in the house

Am's tree in her office is very cute
