Along with my dad and Shirley being here and celebrating Christmas with us, we always have a dinner.....but not the night we open presents!!! We learned a long time ago that the little kids are too excited to eat and so it was too much cooking not to be enjoyed!!!! Saturday night was our "dinner party!" We had a marvelous ham, brisket, sweet potatoes casserole, roasted fingerling and green beans with creamy tarragon dressing, stuffed yellow squash, and a pear salad with raspberry cream!! The salad was sooooo good!!
Course we were so full we had to wait a bit for dessert but I made an Italian cream cake, a pecan pie, and we had tons of candy I had made, peanut butter balls, toffee, peanut clusters, mocha truffles, sugar cookies, and Shirley made some of the guys fav things too!!! Soooooo we had to enjoy our flavored coffee Caleb an d Kristen got us a little later in the evening!!
So blessed to have all my children around our table and our beautiful new daughter and grand baby on the way!! Thank you dad and Shirley for coming and blessing us!!!
