We hope that all of you had a relaxing Season with friends and family
Yes, Friends and Family because in the end, that's what's important. I was looking forward to having my Turkey. When we host our family dinner we have turkey but we haven't hosted for a couple of years. In our home stuffing is as valuable as the actual turkey itself. I can still taste it
stuffing and gravy with a bit of Turkey. We also had brussel sprouts, hash and potatoes and of course several varieties of dessert to pack your stomach
It was also baby's first Christmas
don't be mislead by the peaceful look, it doesn't last long. We took turns trying to calm her down but her screaming is hard to take
unless you just happen to have a pair of ear protectors
During this time of year it is easy to eat too much. Christmas dinner, then turkey left overs, visiting friends and going out for a family brunch
This was my 2nd plate at the Buffet. My first plate was filled with a Salmon/crab/cheese/tomato omelette from the custom omelette station. I was so hungry I forgot to snap a photo. Funny how that is. The more you eat the more hungry you are.
By the time I got to my 3rd plate I thought I better have something healthy, so it was salad and raspberries. I love raspberries. In passed on the dessert table but continued to drink many glasses of grapefruit juice. I prefer grapefruit juice over apple, orange or pineapple
After about 2 hours of eating and talking, we were done . . .
and even though I love omelettes, I don't think I could take another bite
I sometimes can't believe how lucky I am as I look at 3 generations in one place
Our three grand children, together enjoying each others company
and our older grand daughter taking care of our newest grand daughter
and I was also given a small pocketful of Marzipan
another of my favouries. I'm not sure how long I can keep these delicacies inside their packages.
Life goes on. Elder generations being replaced by Younger generations. As we age we have to cherish these moments while we can. Family and Friends, I am lucky to have both
