Merry Christmas!!

Last night's dinner went very well. We had such a good time and everyone got a lot of prime rib to eat and went home super full and happy.
Then this morning, the gift explosion began and we were happy to just hang around and enjoy each other's company.
Now we are finishing baking a batch of my grandma's butter cookies to take to my dad who is visiting my son's for Christmas dinner. It should be yummy, he very ambitiously chose Italian fare to cook for the feast.

Here are a few pictures from before our festivities. I love the new napkins I got for Christmas dinner. They had a Battenberg corner and some pretty red and green embroidery in one corner. Such a deal on Ebay for $8.00 free shipping; that was for 12 super cute new napkins. I only had 8 guests so I used the other napkins as bread basket cloths for the rolls. It was chilly enough for us to have a roaring fire going in the dining room and this made it even more cozy. I love the new dinner ware I got for this year, I was so lucky to find everything that coordinated for super inexpensive. We love to drink sparkling cider so I bought simple glass goblets (look like wine glasses) with a gold trim that matched the water tumblers, also with a gold trim and the white china plates (with a gold trim.) So nice to find stuff like that at the Dollar Tree, even if you accidentally break something it is just a buck. No one can get mad about that!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy your family and friends. Please be safe no matter what you are doing.
