This year we hosted the Mairs. We cooked a delicious bird and all the aunties brought sides that filled the plates, including a cheese ball from Cassie’s mom that I still dream about. Paige is into painting the holidays and about the above bird: she interpreted my sketch. Why yes that is a storm trooper snowflake hanging in the window, would you like to make one?
Grandpa Mair made all the grandkids a book of pictures and had Addie and Payson help pass them out.
It was a fun time setting up one long table with place cards. We brought up the preschool table for more seating and left it up stairs for the whole holiday season. We started eating at it for dinner and it’s so luxurious because we all fit and there’s room for food too. In January I took the honey oak honeymooners table back downstairs and for now it always looks like we’re about ready to host the church Christmas banquet.
