Christmas Day 2008!

Samantha received perfume from Aerie. She also received a new ipod nano and was loading videos and songs during the picture-taking. :-)

The finished product--not a pretty picture, in my opinion, but tasted so darn good!

We had a wonderful day celebrating Christmas! It started at 7 am with opening presents & stockings--which only took an hour! Then we had a yummy breakfast...eggs, home-made waffles, and ghutta (family recipe). Afterwards, Kara went down for a nap and the rest of us showered and got dressed for the day. Then we started cooking Christmas dinner. We prepared the turkey with a delicious rub my dad passed down to us. It is a mixture of olive oil, freshly chopped rosemary, freshly chopped basil, minced garlic, Italian seasoning and pepper. Tim followed in his older brother's footsteps and took a picture of the finished product above. Along with the turkey, we had sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce and rolls. It was incredibly delicious, and we loved having our friend, Connie, join us for dinner.

Christmas 2008 has been one to remember!
