I made four types of cookies, one gingerbread roll (with Jeaux’s help), and a Christmas quiche for Christmas Eve!
Got to go to the Henry B. Plant Museum to see trees and cool old stuff with Meggie:
And then got to meet the dude she’s dating
Lovely time with family and plenty of food! Full gallery in the Vacations and Events Page for Christmas Eve 2021 but here are a few faves.
Had my mom and two safe friends over for holiday dinner! For the first time, I got to cook and host! I made dinner and dessert for everyone and we exchanged gifts. Everything came out so unbelievably delicious!
On Christmas we had dinner at Mom’s (I brought Jeaux) and also my nephew ran a pretend restaurant and had me teaching classes on poop and farts.
He is an incredible artist.
Group after dessert on Christmas Eve! Yusuke, me, Dad, Connie, Patricia, and Ash!
Christmas Day happened at my mom’s house this year! Sister Patricia, brother-in-law Yusuke, and nephew Ash were staying with Mom. Sister Lindsay and brother-in-law Mike drove in to visit, and I brought friends Victor and Jeaux. Later Lindsay and Mike’s friend Ryan and Mom’s roomie David joined us.
We made cookies, had dinner, and opened gifts!
