    Did the whole thing myself since i am now the matriarch of the family, it sort of sucks, but the meal was great, I must admit! Probably my job from here-on in.

    We had constant holiday celebrations over a few days, which we were invited over to other family members homes. Lots of food and good company, and all I had to bring was something with us so that we had something to contribute.

    Feasted at home and did all the cooking. Cooked a fresh, farm grown ham, potatoes, green bean casserole and all the other fixings. Fantastic but totally exhausting. Maybe we’ll head to Grandma’s next year…

    My husband had to work and my Mother spent the night at my house Christmas eve. We woke up first thing Christmas morninga and started cooking. We were making Christmas dinner for the local police substaion. They were very appreciative. By the time we got home we were so tired we had their leftovers and did not make what we were going to make for ourselves!!!

    We had a very large dinner at our house. But, I just found out that we’re expecting another baby so everyone but me did the work. One of the perks of pregnancy I guess.
