12-25-14 That’s The Way I Like It (Merry Christmas)

12-24: Wake up at 8am. Go to bed on 12/25 at 4:15am. I haven’t done that in at least a year. Great time though.

Started with the cookie decorating. Abigail and her three friends, Eva, Caroline and Edy have been doing this on 12/24 for at least 10 years now.

The young women finished up about 4:30 and then it was time to finish setting up for the party.  Guests started arriving around 7:30. We ate around 9:30: smoked goose, short ribs, cauliflower, mashed, turnips and greens, huge fresh salad, some fish dish (I don’t eat fish so I don’t focus on that) and a whole lot of other stuff, Dessert was the cookies, of course, baklava sent from Boston by my mom (always a large hit) pies, cakes and so on. The last guest left about 1am and I sent everyone to bed at 3 so I could finish the clean up. Went out at 4 (we were out of coffee! – can’t have christmas morning without joe!)

I’m sorry we couldn’t invite you all. Maybe next year?

  1. It all sounds so nice, and the pictures look warm.

    Amazing to be able to go out and get coffee that time of night/morning. Would have been out of luck here… or, maybe not, now that I stop and think of it! There IS one convenience store that is 24/7.
