Merry Christmas!

My family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve.  Christmas Day isn’t really that exciting for us.  In Guatemala, there are fireworks and everyone eats at midnight.  Here, we have dinner whenever the food is ready around 9pm then open presents at midnight.

Here are a few of the Christmas Highlights: My mother takes every opportunity possible to decorate.

The tables looked lovely.  Even the kids table…

Then there were pictures take in front of the tree…

I fought sliced a turkey

My friend David sang show tunes Christmas Carols…

There was also food!

I realized last night that I forgot to take a picture of the sweet potato casserole and the potato apple gratin!  Oh well! Uncooked…

The potato-apple gratin was interesting.  But I’m not sure I’d make it again.  My brother would like to know why I can’t just made potato gratin on its own… that’s a good question…

By 10:30ish, I was in my pajamas.   Pajamas are a favorite in my family.

That’s me holding a fabulous jacket I got from my sister.  My brother gave me an interesting looking book called On Paradise Drive.  I also got some sweet socks and exercise clothes from my parents.  Thanks family for all the great gifts!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

    I am so jealous of families that actually get to set a table and all sit at one spot together. So beautiful! We tend to spill all over the sofas, tables, and floor.
