Mama got a new camera for Christmas! My hubby is so good to me. I’ve mentioned that this Christmas season has been difficult to get into, so when my aunt Carrie and uncle Edd decided to come for a visit I perked right up. They decided to stay through Christmas day and we all had a great time during their time here. Edd took to Lorelei right away, which was fun to see and we all played games together. A favorite was Bananagrams, so if you are a words person, this is a fun one to get! I took my aunt to Waynesville and showed her Mast General (love that store) and Nick and Nate’s. Delicious!
As per tradition we took a family pic while we were all together. I love it, but I love the prep pic more…
You can see my mom in the chaos smiling at Henry.
Right after presents and breakfast my aunt and I set to cooking the sides for Christmas lunch. We had been baking all day, the day before; pumpkin pies, apple pies, cookies galore. Yummo! That’s Jason above getting all the turkey ready to eat.
After lunch we hung out playing games and enjoying our presents like this super soft blanket from aunt Carrie!
We went to Jason’s dad’s that evening and hung out with his family eating lasagna. That too seems to be becoming a tradition. I enjoyed seeing everyone and (can I say it?) am glad it is over. :o) Hope your day was merry too.
