Milk and Cookies Placement and Polish Christmas Eve

Acrobatics on the ottoman make the magical setting real.

Probably the last year for second grader Anna to believe that Santa will come and eat that plate of cookies and the carrots will be eaten by the reindeer.  We had a Polish Christmas eve honoring Erika’s father’s heritage

    I vicariously enjoyed the pierogi’s. Smiled as I caught sight of the gymnastic grandson sprawled over the ottoman ( give him 9.5 points ) and the entire fireplace scene complete with the Christmas PJ’s. Merry Christmas to all.

    What a beautiful scene! Jan and I combined her tradition (steak and crabcakes) with some of my family traiditions (periogies and baked macaroni, sheese and tomatoes casserole) and had Chirstmas Eve dinner at her home! I loved the look of the beet soup… mom would have that on “little Chirstmas”…. lvoe to all!
