My grandparents with all the grandkids and great grandkids
Following pictures we snacked on delicious appetizers, stuffed ourselves silly with prime rib and mashed potatoes and then take a break to do our Christmas program. This portion has changed and developed over the years. My brothers are currently in charge.
The kids all have lines to read out of the Christmas story. We sing songs by candle light. I love it and hope it is a memory my kiddos cherish some day too. Almost everything about our evening is predictable because we have been doing it for so long.
Thankfully they have a generator that ran all of the necessities, but it definitely kept things interesting. I'm still in awe of all the food my grandma was able to make without an oven. Every year she sends our families home with a coffee cake for Christmas morning. I assumed we wouldn't get one this year, but she was able to make them in her roaster!
We also lost the generator while they were finishing up the prime rib. It definetly kept the night interesting! So thankful to have so many family members to celebrate with.
