Christmas Celebration

Bob's family gathered this weekend for fun, food and celebrations. The kitchen counter was a buffet center with Mom's famous perogies and cabbage rolls, turkey, stuff, mashed potatoes, gravy, baked beans(for the vegetarians), creamed peas and carrots, meatballs, 3 kinds of salad plus pickles and buns. It was truly a feast!! Amazing how much variety you can get when each one brings something.

Kelsey baked these marvelous snowflake cookies that were gigantic and a huge hit with the kids. She truly is a baker extraordinaire!! They looked just out of Martha Stewart's kitchen!

And Bob's sister brought a chocolate fountain for dessert. It was fun and looked so cool. Thanks to Mel for capturing the images - she was having fun with the big camera.

Bob got a fancy tire gauge and I came home with a funky Santa figure from the fun gift exchange. Our nieces baked biscotti, made chocolates and dipped pretzels for us - they are so yummy!

Today we had the children's Christmas concert at church and a handbell choir and singers in an evening concert. Busy day! Kelsey also stuffed 2 stockings and wrapped some gifts for me this afternoon before they went home. It was such a huge help - thanks, Girl - you're the best!!
