I hope you had a very Merry Christmas. Since Friday, my time has pretty much been family, family, family. Saturday DD1 and I made Oreo and Nutter Butter Truffles and canned batch of jam, using up an assortment of strawberries, raspberry's, and rhubarb from the freezer. DD2 and DH spent some tie together and went to the Star Wars movie. Late that night we picked up DH from the airport. Christmas eve I kept to my newer tradition nd made a batch of soup and Ciabatta bread, which we enjoyed before church. Later the kids exchanged their presents, though DS is still waiting on the rest of his Amazon delivery. We spent the night then at my sisters with over 50 extended family members. DS reprised his role as Santa; he's a good sport.
We had more gifts for the kids in the morning but then headed to DH's moms. We were of the attitude that no one was going to disrupt our feelings of peace on earth and good will to man. With healthy assistance from a fine petit blanc, I had a good day.My mother in law gave each me and my sister in laws one of those copper kettle pans. I've heard good things about those, so will enjoy using. Our nephew/Godson was thrilled with his penny skateboard. We pretty much at eh same foods each day because our families have similar backgrounds, but no one was complaining. Below are some pictures of Christmas Day, round 2 which was any lunch leftovers and a few extra simple sides like brie and crackers and veggies and dip.
