The weather cooperated and I was able to go home for Christmas. Our Christmas is filled with traditions. One is getting outside and seeing the wildlife. I miss the sound of the geese. Their honks filled the air.
I'm making a family cookbook, so we really worked to get photos of everyone in the kitchen. My dad never cooks, except oyster stew. Funny thing is none of us kids know how to make oyster stew. We still needed an action shot of him in the kitchen and a plan was hatched. When he came upstairs, I asked him to stir the gravy and my niece, Sierra, took an action shot. It was a well coordinated event. We were successful. We were so impressed with our little plan that we even got the hired man, Jr, stirring the pot.
That is a run-down of our Christmas traditions. It made for a great trip. What are your Christmas traditions? Do you go sledding? Does everyone help with the cooking? Who does the dishes? What desserts do you have? Whatever you do I hope you had a very Merry Christmas.
