Merry Christmas

A quick Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my on-line friends.

Opening gifts started at 5:30 this morning and breakfast was finished by 7:30.

mega hit with the 5 year old--LOL.

We went to 8:00 Mass last night, it was considered "Midnight Mass" which may be a little odd, but it was great to be home by 9:30. It was a lovely service with beautiful music.

My family is coming later. We're having an Italian Christmas, well partly. Starting with antipasto, and moving on to ceasar salad, stuffed shells, baked ziti, chicken parm, meatballs and sausage. Decided against doing a full dinner with it, didn't figure anyone would have room for turkey or ham with all the trimmings.

Hoping everyone has a wonderful Christmas.

Peace and Love, Tara

Merry Christmas, Tara! I was over at one of my bestfriend's house yesterday (she's godmother of my son, and I'm godmother of her oldest son). She's Italian so it was no meat, seafood galore, thing. Yummy! Today, I do the more traditional turkey, rice, potatoes, etc. Tomorrow, I start the diet. lol. Have a wonderful day!

Jaye, my Grandmother would do the 7 fishes thing after Midnight Mass when I was really little, but we never went, but she would then do a traditional "Italian" Christmas dinner too.

Jane, I did get one, I'm not sure how the darned thing works--LOL.

Amanda, to you and yours too, thank you.

Jane I haven't unboxed it yet. Though I did take a quick look at it and I think it's a really simple thing, uses a memory card like a digital camera--I can work a digital camera, I should be able to work this right??
