Christmas 2009

The sights, smells, and activities of our Christmas 2009.
Our usual traditional food; card playing; eating and drinking; and of course opening presents at midnight.
Thank goodness for sisters-in-law who know how to cook, otherwise, we may have had to order out for Christmas!! No joke! The house smelled so yummy. The women in the kitchen cooking up a storm. The guys playing poker. The kids running, playing, and enjoying the chaos. And seeing family we hadn't seen for a while. It was all good.
There was no stress. No troubles. Nothing to worry about. Nothing to do but enjoy eachothers company, and watch our kids have a blast.
Oh, man, what I would do for some more of that breaded shrimp, and rice balls.. soo yumm.
My best present this year: a pair of handmade knit slippers from Helen's mother
Other best gifts: Spilling Open by Sabrina Ward Harrison, and Stencil 101 and Stencil 101 Decor by Ed Roth

More later...
