Our family gatherings are usually very casual so I opted for pretty paper plates and napkins purchased last year after Christmas (on sale!) at Target. Of course no Christmas dinner would be complete without a plate of appetizers, and as is tradition in my family, ours included black olives, sweet gherkin pickles, and celery with cream cheese and paprika.
And on Christmas eve morning, I had a few friends over for brunch...this has become an annual get-together for my best friends from high school and I to see one another! After several tries with the self-timer, this is as good as it gets:
Sorry Baby Ella...thanks for taking one for the team! From Left to Right: Ella, Katie D., me, Drew, Katy G., and Katie B.! Yes, my three best friends from high school are all 'Kate'! How funny is that? I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!
