Merry Christmas!!!

Y’all have a great day!! We are in the middle of the five day birthday extravaganza for my boy!! He will be 18 on Boxing Day!!!

Put politics aside. Eat too much. Hug your friends and family. Let go of grudges. Life is waaay too short for a lot of the stuff we hold against people. Agree to disagree.

We are not doing traditional food today. Today is appetizers and finger foods. I’m making egg rolls, a fruit and cheese tree, a cheesy bread pizza tree, and a hot cranberry cocktail.

Dirty Santa is always a hit as well.

Traditional Christmas dinner tomorrow and then Greek food for the birthday dinner.


See y’all later!! Have a great day and please, don’t drink and drive.

B

2. Same to you and yours! I now have two sets of relatives who have also moved to Florida...

... 120 miles away, so I'll be driving up with a trunk-full of gifts and a cooler for leftovers for the return trip...

4. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

We celebrated with my side yesterday. Did a birthday, as well. Today is just me and the wife. We're having some family over tomorrow. My wife will put out a traditional Christmas dinner. She's a great cook.

7. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Sounds like fun!

We have a packed next few days as well. My son and his family arrive later this morning. We are doing the Feast of the Seven Fishes later this afternoon and evening, so I am taking the grandchildren with me to get the seafood from Whole Foods and a wonderful Italian deli. I will probably spoil their dinner with an extra homemade Cannoli!

After dinner, we will rest before midnight Mass. After the family retires to their hotel room, my loving woman and I will enjoy some party foods (caviar, crab dip, champagne, shrimp cocktail, etc.) and exchange gifts late night.

Christmas Day will be games and family time together. We are not doing a traditional meal but will have a lot of seafood leftovers and I did bake a few pies.

My sisters and little brother arrive the day after Christmas which is one of my sister's birthday as well so we will celebrate that. I am not sure what is on the agenda for the rest of the week. I have to work at least one day this week so probably Thursday so I can do a long New Year's weekend.

Have a wonderful week everyone!
