Laura and Marilyn (dressed for the occasion as a Christmas Elf) at Laura's traditional Christmas Eve Open House. This tradition dates back to Laura's childhood in North Carolina, where her mom Esther, and her dad, O.C., plus sister Claudia hosted all comers. Laura has been putting on this party almost every year she's lived in Durango, and even though Esther, O.C. and Claudia are all gone, the Godfrey tradition remains, including "the recipie", the Whisky Sour punch. Oh my yes!
