The first of many family gatherings for the seaons has happened. We hosted Steve's family here on Saturday for our Family dinner. Steve made a ham and together we put together a big variety of food choices.
Our before company energy!!!
A Scandinavian heart with a marzipan pig inside... the prize for finding the almond in the pudding (traditionally it is a rice pudding, but since that's not a big hit with people, we chose to go with chocolate pudding)
We went with a rustic theme... brown paper on the tables for tablecloths, along with crayons so everyone could colour while they were waiting.
Steve reading the Christmas story from the Bible...
Our crazy little Santa girl!
Steve's parents gave us money and we put it towards Rock Band! Even his mom got in on the drumming action :)
