Christmas Past

Another Christmas gone by! I love Christmas and enjoy the time spent with family and friends. But my most favorite part is the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. I love watching all the Christmas movies and listening to my favorite Christmas music. The putting up of the tree's and the lights. I love Christmas Eve and Day don't get me wrong but it always seems so busy and it go's by so fast!
We had all the kids Christmas Eve this year and my daughter and son help with the cooking of the dinner. I didn't want to do the same thing that we seem to always cook which is ham so I asked my so to make a pork loin. As you can see everyone was waiting in anticipation!

He sliced it down the middle and stuffed it with crumbled blue cheese and cranberries with fresh rosemary and boy did it smell good!
It looked so nice sliced with the red cranberries!
My daughter made a lasagna stuffed with cheese and squash! It turned out to be such a nice dinner and the watching of the kids open there gift with such excitement.

The day after Christmas we go to a movie and then back to the house for left overs. This year it was the back to our sons new home and a few games of Wii!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
