Merry Christmas

anneliese_32(6)December 25, 2011

Have a great day and enjoy the company of your family and friends.

Still a few minutes of quietness here, the gift giving was last night, as a good Kraut we celebrate Christmas Eve here, this way there is no problem which side of the family is the one to have the honors on Christmas Day and they don't have to travel.

Unexpectedly our oldest son and family arrived on Thursday and we have a full house anyway.

Merry Christmas all. I do Christmas eve also, being a good Kraut - but we celebrate with a Swiss Fondue before opening the gifts. Our party consisted of Joann and me, three dogs and four cats, a good time was had by all

It's shrimp here because the vegetarians eat them too and Midnight hides out when we have visitors. Donald leaves his 3 labs at home, they are too rumbunctious to go anywhere, their tails are a lethal weapon for anything which is not nailed down.

Merry Christmas to all! May you also have a very blessed and happy New Year...early I know but I won't be home to be on the computer until late the 2nd.

Youngest son invited all his wife's immediate family (9 people) from California out here for her Christmas surprise - and, we all managed to keep the secret. They came in one family at a time until all had arrived (Wed., Thur., and last evening). Other son's wife almost slipped with something she said, but Charlene didn't figure it out. Then, we got up this morning to a white Christmas and when we got out of church about noon, it had started snowing again - fairly heavy at this time. Don't believe we will yank the 5th wheel down the road tomorrow as we had planned. Will probably wait until Tuesday to leave.

Everyone be safe, keep warm, enjoy the special food treats of the season and hug your loved ones.

Merry, Merry Christmas to all and a very Happy New Year!

We had our Christmas with the kids last night.
The books I tracked down and bought for Neil's children was a HUGE success. I still haven't found Rhyme and Humor
but perhaps one day soon, I will.
They think it's so great to have one of their great grandfather's books.

Neil and I just got home from my sister's house. My siblings and I always get together for Christmas. We all cook something and take it for the dinner, then open presents. There was so much food there today.

Turkey,Dressing, gravy
Ham
Fried Okra
Corn
Hash Brown casserole
Sweet Potato casserole
Broccoli casserole
Squash casserole
Green Beans
Corn Bread salad
Broccoli salad
Cole Slaw
Strawberry Nut salad
Cranberry Orange Nut salad
Red Velvet cake
Banana Pudding
Raspberry Lemonade pie
Peach Cobbler
Sour Cream Pound cake
Cheese Biscuits

I know I left some things out but you can see that no one
left the table hungry.

The day is nearly over, but a "Merry Christmas" from me, too. Our little family of six gathered on Christmas Eve, as always - we're also German in origin. :-) First I ever heard about that; perhaps it explains why my family has always chosen that time.

This is the first chance I've had to get on line, today, but I hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas. My family and I surely did; we ate too much, laughed a lot, and enjoyed being together. It doesn't happen too often, anymore. Next time will be Easter, I suppose. (See how easily I've managed to make four or five months' disappear?)
