360- Second Annual Boxing Day

Last year Gordon suggested we have our Christmas celebration on Boxing Day! It is a fabulous new family tradition. Most of our children are married now so there is the obligatory sharing with in-laws and our grandchildren are old enough they'd like to spend Christmas day at their own house playing with new toys. And as I've said before... for me it isn't about THE DAY it's all about FAMILY and FOOD!

We had most of our local family and Stuart brought 3 of his roommates/friends (yeah, Chrissy isn't a roommate! hahahahaha)

Everybody... look at Grammie! What a great looking group!

360- family & friends

These sweet cousins enjoy each other so much. What a blessing... it's all about family.

The food fairly disappeared!

And let it be said... "This feast wouldn't have happened THIS DAY without my Stuart!" He trouped in the kitchen with me from the time the celery & onion were being chopped to making orange rolls single-handedly to stowing the turkey-carcass in the ginormous bag to the last dish being washed. You are an amazing man!
