The Man and I would like to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and we hope that each of you had a wonderful holiday celebration!!
I must say that I am looking forward to reading all of your fabulous holiday recaps as the day moves on (woah Google Reader outta control wow ❤ it!!!)
As for us, our holiday was nothing short of spectacular 🙂 I couldn’t have asked for anything more – the company, the food, the entertainment, the generosity…. everything that Christmas should be and more and I am so grateful for all of it!
First up, a Christmas Eve recap from our side of town 😉
Twas the afternoon night before Christmas and all through the house…..
Cocktails were poured and enjoyed by the sisters
Presents galore were exploding with Christmas
The appetizers were set out for the family to enjoy
And the sisters were ready to start with the cooking
With a tap at the door there arose a small clatter, we sprang to the door to see what was the matter!
Away from the doorstep he ran like a flash, the UPS Santa had come with a stash!
Side note: So excited that the wonderful folks over at Xagave knew how to kick this Christmas Eve up a notch by sending me this fantastic package – surprise! – oh I can’t wait to try some of the recipes in the cookbook bc they all look spectacular 🙂
You will be seeing these adventures in the upcoming week…. stay tuned!
The rest of the family arrived with their eating caps on
Now Sharon, now Kim, now Steph and now Lucy (?) let’s roll to the kitchen!!
Sauteed mushrooms w/ onion and garlic
Baked scallops w/ lemon, butter & worcestershire topping
The table was set and dinner was ready
Pierogi w/ green onion butter, sauerkraut and noodles, shrimp, baked scallops, sauteed mushrooms, salad = 6! Plus 1 for the appetizer and 7 were served 🙂
Even Miss Thang wanted in on that action!
I’ll be back later for a full Christmas Day recap spent at The Man’s family’s house which included presents, dinner for 18 (?!?!?!), Wii dancing and more!
Have a great day everyone, time for this lady to get outside and enjoy the weekend (Lucy says so too!) 🙂
