Christmas Eve Dinner

Jeaux and I invited Dad and Connie over for Christmas Eve dinner! We made white bean pot pies, homemade dinner rolls, vegan scalloped potatoes, green bean casserole, whipped cauliflower, and homemade gravy. We had a gift exchange after dinner. And then there was a gingerbread roll and five kinds of homemade cookies!

After Viewing Day

We stayed over in Sarasota at my dad’s house after our mom’s viewing and had some yummy food at a restaurant (Ash was overwhelmed by a waffle!) and then they spent some time swimming and we even got to play Cards Against Humanity (family edition).

We horsed around on the tire swing, jumped around the house, and went to dinner with Dad & Connie.

Family visit with Dad

I got to go see my dad and Connie for our holiday gathering 2018. I rode along with Patricia, Yusuke, and Ash, and we met Lindsay and Mike there. Much fun was had!

My salad: not that adventurous.

Mike’s good with that ice cream.

Gifting is serious.

Madhouse of gift-giving!

Clearly enjoying the presents!
