Feliz Navidad


We started our Christmas morning out early with Deli throwing up a few times. Tess re-woke us up at 8:00 with a "hey, there's a trampoline out my window" and so the unwrapping began. Boo remained completely uninterested in Christmas--despite Roo's efforts to involve her--until a Tinkerbelle lamp from Granda brought her back to consciousness. Here's a Christmas video to sum up our day as well as a glimpse back at last Christmas in Austin.

Once again, in yet another attempt to lure kindred food loving spirits to visit, I'm posting our Christmas Eve feast menu
Bourbon brown sugar pecan encrusted salmon
Brussel Sprouts with crisp proscuitto
Habenero roasted potatoes

Sparkling pomegranate juice
and lots of bread smeared with nutella
(thanks to Dona, thank you, thank you, thank you)

This is one of my favorite photos of my mom. We added a little something extra to her wassail that made her an especially fun Christmas guest. Cheers!

I wish I could have kept Joe up long enough to eat something (looks great)... we've been taking turns sleeping all day!!! Trampoline was a fab idea! I wish our backyard was big enough for one... guess we'll come jump on yours!!! Merry Christmas!

GAH! That's the best pic of Sylvia! It makes me laugh out loud here in my boring old office.

Looks like a great Christmas! Can you bring some of that gourmet dinner when you come for a visit. We're not doing to well on the texas trip thing yet.

Love you all

Oh, my goodness, it's the Elasti-girls on the trampoline. Wow, that looks like fun...and it aroused Adelle from her death bed and put roses in Tess's cheeks. Our Christmas Day menu was: Broiled Salmon with Asparagus, Shrimp/Pepper/Lime Salad, Stuffed Mushrooms, Southwestern Brown Rice, Hot Rolls, Raspberry Jello, Holly Berry Slush, and Golden Raisen-Bread-Pudding with Custard Cinnamon Sauce. We had 5 cooks in the kitchen but no munchkins...we would rather have the munchkins. Thank you for sharing Christmas Day. Watch for your Birthday Box in the mail! Love you, Granda
