Holiday Fun!

What a great holiday it was!  It starts at our house on Christmas Eve.  I worked some, but it was pretty slow, so we could prep for dinner pretty easily.

Table set up:

My great grandmother’s service, which I now have.

John did his specialty – the sugared pecans.

nuts

AKA crack nuts.  I love these so much.

Family arrived for dinner.  Me and my mama!

We set up a side table for buffet as our ‘eating’ table is too  small to have dishes on it.

We had smoked ham, crockpot ziti (so easy and really good!), sweet potatoes, smashed potatoes, salad and a selection of beverages  :mrgreen:

After dinner we did present opening, music and a game.

John played Peanuts music and Christmas carols. I played one Christmas carol on guitar.  I only learned one LOL!

We had The Cake.  Grandpa’s birthday cake.

Christmas morning and John and I woke up to snow!  White Christmas!

Here are some of the gifts received this year:

The beginning of the bathroom upgrade, right here!  Guess what will be on the list of things to accomplish in 2013??

I love these little pins from my mom.  One is Pixie and the other is Chloe (my cat I had for 18 years).

I got John this as he drinks a lot of cans of seltzer and diet soda.

He made some already and likes it!

Plus lots of other things that you will see at some point on the blog  :mrgreen:

 

Then it was heading down to my sister’s house for dessert and more games! Scruteneyes (hard!)

Even my dad joined that game, which is pretty rare!

We laughed *a lot*!!  I so love the games.

What a great time.  Food, family and fun.  The 3 F’s I love  :grin:

Today’s ornament.  Cupcake ornament number 3 in the series!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, however you spent it!
