Here I am playing catch-up again.
I am starting with our 2nd annual gathering of our RV family at Christmas Eve brunch at Pat and Dan’s. Everyone brought a dish or two to share and we ate all the really tasty food.
There were scramble eggs, scones, potatoes, quiche, fresh fruit, sausage, French toast, mimosas, desserts and other goodies too numerous to remember.
After all the good food was eaten we sat and visited for a while before doing the gift exchange.
Each couple had drawn a name earlier and were to purchase a gift for that couple with a $10 limit. You were not to tell anyone who's name you drew until today. Because I had on a Santa hat they decided I was to give out the gifts. So one at a time the wives opened the gift for the couple.
It was lots of fun and some really nice gifts.
Jesse and I overloaded with food came home and just did almost nothing for the rest of the day.
It started with coffee while we watched the boys open their stockings.
Of course we would love to be with our families during the holiday’s, but today was spent with our very good and loving friends Ed and Marilyn. We talked with all our family members throughout the day to wish them
Marilyn and I decided to make dinner for the 4 of us and she was our hostess. She set a beautiful table.
We had turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, gravy, cranberries, fruit salad, waldorf salad, green beans and wine. I made a pineapple upside down cake for dessert.
After dinner the guys played with Ed’s new toys, a bug zapper and a infra-red thermometer while Marilyn and I got the food put away and dishes done.
Then it was time for dessert and football, which I am not too interested in the latter. So we stayed for just a little before packing up and going home. Back at the house we watched a movie on TV and then off to bed.
It was a very nice way to spend the holidays with food, fun, laughter and good friends.
Hugs and God Bless!
