Dave was able to take three weeks off work. Lucky guy! This is a picture of him at 11a.m.. When do mommies get a vacation? :o)
Dave and I alternate which family we celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with each year. This year we were scheduled to spend Christmas with Dave's family. So the Draman family Christmas was scheduled for December 20th.
This year the Draman family Christmas was going to be at Dave and my house. We were really excited!
In preparation for the Christmas feast, I kidnapped my grandmas for the three or so days before to help in making Christmas goodies, appetizers, and parts of the meal. I had such a good time. I think my kitchen was used more in those three days than in the entire time we have lived here. Now after two trys at divinity I think a know what the "hard ball" stage is. My grandmas are troopers. They had to have been exhausted, I know I was, but they kept coming back for more. Here are some shots of my Grandma Draman, my mom, and my Taste Testers.I also took some shots of the goodies we made. Don't they look yummy!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies
Persimin Cookies (not sure on the spelling)
