It's difficult to remember to take pictures of everything with friends and family and the excitement of Christmas around! It started out as Mom and Dad, Brother, John & I, but we quickly multiplied and my good friend Sara came over, as did a couple of Brother's friends. It was a full house (though not as full as some) and it was joyous. I tried to remember "the blog", but I often found myself mowing down on cookies, pie, and dinner treats without even glimpsing at the camera. In the Happy Ho Ho entry I listed off the menu items we planned for Christmas dinner. Below are photos of what we indulged in..... Some are rushed, others worked out alright (though there was no fancy plating/presentation that day!). And I missed the pumpkin pie. I like to think it's omnipresent even if the photo isn't. The food was traditional yet elegant and absolutely fatteningly delicious.
