A White Christmas...finally.

Goodmorning and Merry Christmas everyone:). I'm up early today, sitting in my mother's kitchen, sipping on some coffee, and enjoying the stillness as everyone else is sleeping. There is white stuff on the ground this morning, and I can't remember the last time Christmas morning wasn't dry and brown...yay, I am so happy! Last night, we had our traditional family Christmas Eve celebration at my Grandparent's house. We had such a great time last night...We honored my Grandparent's tradition (pre-grandchildren) of homemade soup and salad for dinner, followed by a large consumption of Holiday baked treats- holy yum! We all decided that having a lighter soup and salad option for dinner, allowed more room for the tasty desserts- perfect! A few notables from the evening...

- Grandma put a laundry basket on her head.

- Erinn received a humungo/adult-sized lamie... when she was a baby, she had a little lamb skin that she absolutely loved.

- Mom referred to Maddy a homeless person, thanks to the quite stylish (unbeknown to her) cut-off gloves I gave her. We warned my mother that we were going to start referring to her comments as "Julie-isms" if she wasn't careful.

- Adam's presents were all house-hold items: glasses, silverware, bowls, plates, pans... for a 22 year old guy...his excitement over the gifts was cracking us all up. Guess you have to have nothing in the house, while living on your own, to truly appreciate those items.





What a fabulous Christmas with the family...love them ever so much.

I would love a pair of homeless gloves.

We did the soup and salad thing too on Christmas Eve. I think it should be a Demetra tradition. Loved it.

Happy to hear you had a wonderful WHITE Christmas sweet Jillian. :)
