Christmas 2014 in New Orleans

Once again, Judy and I drove to New Orleans for Christmas with her sister's family.  And that family is growing by leaps and bounds lately with Nephew # 2's marriage in November, and Nephew # 1's upcoming marriage in May.  Both come with lots of in-laws and maybe even some out-laws.  But, so far, all those we've met have been nice-laws.

On the way over we also stopped in Lafayette to have lunch at Gator Cove.  It is operated by a long-time Egghead friend and his wife.  They insisted that it was on the house.  So we arrived in New Orleans full of shrimp PoBoy and Seafood Gumbo.  And guess where we went for dinner... Yes, a Cajun restaurant that sold, you guessed it, PoBoy's and Gumbo.  And then we had some Sister-in-Law Gumbo the next day and Left-Over Gumbo when we arrived home.  Yes, we're pretty much Gumbo'd out at the moment.

One of the first things we wanted to do was show the videos I assembled of Nephew # 2's wedding last month.  They all seemed to have liked it.  Sorry,but the videos are too large to post on YouTube.

We had a lot of fun with people, food and presents, including some upcoming birthdays.  We returned home on Friday, the day after Christmas to avoid the heavy traffic.  Glad we did.  Lots of rain after we got home, and is still raining.

I took over 400 photos.  Quickly culled those done to about 350, and the remaining ones I edited out which ones to put in a video/slide show that would last less than 8 minutes (the maximum time humans can look at photos before losing interest).  I posted the video on two Egghead Forums and Facebook, but you can click here and see it...

Now to ride out the next couple of months and into March for the first Eggfest - The Salado Eggfest on March 14th.

Time sure flies when you're having fun.
