Family Christmas

Our family (except for two who couldn't make it) celebrated Christmas on the 23rd.  We had a great time visiting with kids and grandkids.

We enjoyed our usual Christmas meal of Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes and gravy, lefse, fruit salad (my Gram's recipe), plus a few other things.  It was very good.

Our daughter brought me a bottle of my favorite wine, which she dressed up in holiday style.

Here it is undressed.

This is a nice white wine from Germany; my favorite.

And our daughter-in-law brought Mr. M's favorite dessert:  pecan pie.

I didn't get a picture of it before we started eating it.

After we opened gifts, the two youngest grands and I went to look at our pigs and also the neighbor's sheep.  These two always enjoy looking at the various animals we have around here.

Oh, and the Packers won that day also.  Go, Pack!

Except for missing the two who couldn't come, it was a wonderful day.

Christmas day itself was mostly a quiet one for Mr. M and me.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, too.


  1. Hello :) I just found your blog, Love it :)

    1. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Welcome!

  2. We have a love of German wine in common! That and being related to Mr. M. I really enjoy your blog. And I too, use your fruit salad recipe--you gave it to me many years ago.

    1. Gosh, I don't remember giving you that recipe; my memory seems to fade as the years go by. I'm glad you enjoy the salad.
      Mr. M says hi!
