January was another travel month for us. Tony filmed the very last episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition in Knoxville, TN and I headed to Imaging, USA (photography convention) in New Orleans.
Our Christmas tree was still just as radiant as can be so we decided to leave it up until February. What we didn’t know was that the praying mantis pod that had been lying dormant up until now had plans to hatch around mid-January. An experience that surely shaved years off of my life.
The weather was crazy and we had some unseasonably warm days this month .. forcing us to come to grips with how pale we had become over our months of hibernation. We are totally ok with it though. 🙂
We rang in New Year in true Havre de Grace fashion … by witnessing the lowering of the glowing duck decoy. Sorry there are no photos of that since we sprinted up to it at the very last second. But there ARE photos of us dorking out with some sparklers. Enjoy!
