Family Christmas Gathering 2006

Category: Family and Everyday Life | Posted: Mon Dec 18, 2006 4:12 am

Yes, it was that time of the year again. Time for the annual family Christmas feast. My oldest sister could not come because her husband is not able to travel. My oldest brother did not come because he is a butt, and my youngest did not show either, who knows why. But the rest of us were there and we all had a good time. The kids are great, there are 5 young ones, ages 6years-10 months old. The older three are 17, 14, and 13 years old. Then the older older ones, 22, 21, and 18. Mom seemed to enjoy herself,even though she was tired when it was all over. It is at the middle sister's house every year. It is about and hour and a half drive, which isn't too bad, except you have to travel through Baton Rouge and cross the Mississippi River Bridge. Extreme traffic. The food, as usual, was wonderful, Honey baked ham, turkey, her wild rice dressing, peas, corn, sweet potato casserole, and homemade cresent rolls, plus homemade cookies and candy and an awesome chocolate pie. The kids tore into the presents and just loved them all. Sarah was happy, she got money. We got home at about 6 PM and this is the first time I have really sat down, so I am tired. Ate way too much, so I really need to go to bed. Goodnight all.

Sounds good to me. We don't have too many family gatherings as our family is too scattered. Dooley

It sounds just wonderful, Sharon!
Glad it went so well, and that you all enjoyed each other's company.

What a delicious sounding menu.

Sounds like you drove to Lafayette. And had a great time.

Almost to Lafayette, but not quite. We get off at 415, which is a couple of miles on the other side of the bridge. Then it is probably about 15 miles to her house. We grew up surrounded by sugarcane fields, and she moved right back in the middle of them where she is now.
