Is it really Christmas already?
This weekend I had family come into town for Christmas. Yes, that is right, Christmas. With busy schedules, this was the only weekend we could all get together. Which is nice, because it spreads it out a bit. My dad, my stepmom, stepbrother and his family came. We had a great time, while my brother, SIL and thier kids stayed the night here, my dad and stepmom went to my sisters to sleep. Saturday, my sister and I spent the morning in the kitchen to cook turkey, ham, butter beans, corn, collards, greenbeans, and I can't remember what else (and it was pretty darn good if I do say so myself). After lunch the kids opened a few gifts and then we just all sat around and talked (and of course celebrated a UF win for the SEC championship). Even though they only live 2.5 hours away, I don't get to see them as much as I would like.
