Maybe Next Year...Which is Now This Year

Well, I did it again.  I failed to complete the December Photo Project, which was supposed to be a picture each day for the first 25 days of December, to commemorate all the celebrations of the Christmas season.  I was doing so well, too, at first.  Then the whole thing went downhill, and it can be explained by the photo for December 21.  I got a nasty cold, right before Christmas.  I was not even able to sing in the choir on Christmas Eve. Ugh.  Sure, I was barely keeping up and things were about to spin out of control anyway, with a million activities and a lot of relatives on the way up here, but I am still blaming the cold!

Now the cold is still here, but Christmas and New Years have come and gone; and, thankfully, much fun was had by all.  I feel better but still can't breath.  But now I have been joined by nearly the whole family, even a few out of town relatives (sorry!).  I am not usually the one who starts the family illnesses, but I guess we each take our turn eventually.

All this is to say that I am now going to post those last three (Only three, see I almost did it!) photos, since I did take pictures on those days.  And since I have waited so long and already confessed, I will back date them without one ounce of guilt!

I hope everyone had as nice a Christmas and New Years as I did - minus the cold!

I think you did great. It still counts if you get it in before the end of the first week of the new year.

Boy, I couldn't even tell you were sick when I saw you at church! You always look so pretty. Merry Christmas to you all too - looks like you all had a wonderful time. You forgot, however, the one thing I'm always interested in - what did you cook/eat???

Thank you, Marla! How sweet!

We had our big feast on Christmas Eve. We had prime rib, a cheddar potato bacon tart (worth a whole blog post), a great Christmas-y-looking salad and homemade rolls made by Bryonie, red velvet cake with the special family secret icing, and pecan pie. Good wine, good appetizers (shrimp coctail, yummy cheeseball...) - can we do that again? I think I am getting hungry!

What did you have?
