Boxing Day

Sad to miss my niece's annual Boxing Day party, but worn out from Christmas Day celebration (and the preparation) at our house yesterday. Three naps today - so far!

All was calm - during Christmas Dinner, at least!

Our colorful Christmas table

Grandson Adam put the candy cane reindeer together while spending  a day or two with us earlier in the week.  Thought it would be fun to use them in the place settings.

Little wreath light set added some colorful light to the sparkle on the table. Oops, looks like someone pulled out the wiring - it had been tucked in so it didn't show so much!

Our Menu

Assorted Appetizers
 Cheese & Crackers, Fruit, Vegies, Olives, etc.
Wine, Soda, Water, Juice

Roast Beef au jus
Mashed Potatoes
Green Beans with Almonds
Assorted Rolls

Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
