Our Christmas Day ~ 2008



( more of our Christmas here and here ! )

~~~

On Christmas Eve I didn't get to bed until around 2:00 AM, so I slept later on Christmas morning!

Charles had said he'd get up to get the dinner going. He always likes to make the cornbread for the dressing, anyway, and this time I was more than happy to leave it to him! :)

Zach had awakened me early, to say goodbye and Merry Christmas, before leaving for Orlando; but I was so tired I just had to hang in there awhile...and let things unfold in the kitchen without my help! By the time I got up (probably around 9:00) things were well under way and we were able to get the dressing/stuffing together and the turkey stuffed and in the oven by 10:00.

It would require almost 4 hours of cooking time! We would have our Christmas dinner ready about 2:00!

I must say this was a perfect turkey dinner...stuffed turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, corn, sliced tomatoes, candied sweet potatoes, rolls, cranberry sauce...carrot and celery sticks/with veg-sour cream dip... AND LOTS of desserts! I didn't make my banana pudding this time, though! :( We all missed it, too!
































































We had a fine Christmas Day!
(but we missed Zach)

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!




Love,
Ginga

The turkey looks great. Sounds like you had a good day once you perked up a bit.

Hi AC,

Yes, we had a good Christmas!

( the stress level was high this season for a lot of different reasons but we made it work~ as families usually do!)

Here's hoping for a good 2009 for everyone!

Hi Sally,

A turkey dinner with all the trimmings is my favorite food-and we always manage to have ours turn out good! LOL-I guess practice makes perfect-and C. and I have been doing this for a looong time now!

Happy New Year to you and your family-and to ALL of us!

Hugs))
