Christmas Review

Christmas week is over and it was full of fun and festive events with my family. Most of which is to come in future posts. But for now, on Christmas Eve we prepared holiday dishes. When making our traditional meat pie for Christmas Eve dinner Luke wanted to cook up 2pound of meat but I was concerned it would not fit in our small pie tins, Next thing I know out comes an early Christmas gift labeled “kitchen Santa”. So we had a new large deep dish fiesta-ware pie tin to put our Christmas Eve dinner in.

That night went to service at our church where Luke and I sang in the choir. It was a wonderful celebration with plenty of singing and of course a candle lighting. We enjoyed cookies and punch downstairs then came back and enjoyed our meat pie.

Later that evening we opened our one Christmas Eve present then enjoyed  a local favorite: concord grape pie from Monica’s with homemade whip cream.

On Christmas day the tree was full with presents around one of our other gifts a homemade quilted Christmas Tree Skirt. Below’s picture was before it was full so I could see the skirt.

We started the morning with coffee and opened Kira’s stocking which my mother brought. She found treats and new toys to keep her busy as we opened our own stockings.

We then had our traditional breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, and blue/blackberry buckle. After this we read our Christmas story for the year, a children’s book my grandmother gives us each year focusing on the Christmas story. Then opened presents.

I had to wake her up from a nap to give her her gift on Christmas Eve

She enjoys the new blankets she got: lightweight but warm easy for her to pick up and drag to the living room

We cleaned up some of our Christmas morning mess and spent the rest of the day playing board games and skyping other family members in our PJ’s. We had prime rib with au jus, and family dipping sauce called ‘ham sauce’, parmesan green beans and rosemary/thyme potatoes for dinner.

Then we enjoyed more pie from Monica’s and watched a movie we got for Christmas. It was a fun holiday.
