Christmas Day

Up early to make muffins and an egg casserole for a Christmas Brunch at 10:00 this morning.  We set out cereal and toast for those who had children and needed
a little bite to eat early.  Many slept in a bit and several had their gift exchange.  So having brunch was a good option.



We served 2 quiche dishes, 2 egg casseroles, 2 kinds of muffins and a platter of fruit along with waffles, oj and cranberry juice.  We had 1/3 of one egg dish left over when it was all said and done.  Gord and Andy are great with clean up - JoAnn and I are grateful for that!

Our friends really really liked it so that was satisfying!

I took an hour to put my feet up and then started in on the 3:00 tea and light supper (leftover turkey sandwiches, leftover salads, a fabulous fruitcake, and assorted sweets.). Now we have packed up water, watermelon slices, veggie trays, flatbread and hummus in coolers and we are headed to the dessert for a bonfire and carol sing to close out Christmas.  Sounds like fun, doesn't it?  Wish you could join us for this unique experience.  I'll post pictures later.  



Hope you have had a very meaningful merry Christmas wherever you are today!  I'm tired (nothing new about that) but have enjoyed the day.  

I hope no one expects a repeat for New Year's.  JoAnn and Gord leave tomorrow and we will be here this next week by ourselves...keep praying.  Eight more days...I'm starting to think about returning home to the cold and snow.  It could be a 60 to 80 degree swing in temperature!  Burrr!!!
