We've had quite a three days!
Christmas is officially over and I'm a little sad and glad all at the same time.
Believe it or not - I have all our decorations down except for the actual tree with lights!
I'm going to spend the next few days recapping our holiday weekend starting with our holiday open house on the 23rd.
We invited quite a few people including a lot of my family that is local along with friends and neighbors.
When it was all said and done we had nearly 40 people!
Over 30-adults and nearly 10-children.
We decided early on to serve a holiday ham with assorted rolls and biscuits as part of our menu.
Mustard and assorted jams for fixins'.
Southern, don't you think?
Drinks included a sparkling punch with champagne on the side if you wanted it.
Wines, beer, spirits for mixing along with my traditional Nottoway mulled cider punch.
I think everything turned out lovely if I must say so.
My parents and Brad's parents both drove in early for the party and helped with food.
My Mom put together this veggie tray with a yummy dip that I will have to post about later in the week.
Holiday cheese board with venison summer sausage made from a deer my BIL killed.
Gouda cheese logs.
My friend Karen brought these little snacks that were delish!
I'll post about these later in the week as well.
We also had goose breast my FIL brought and tons of yummy sweets and treats thanks to my cousin Katie.
Of course, SIL and BIL were there.
With the munchkins in tow.
Good friends Amanda and Elizabeth stopped by.
Along with a slew of others.
Including my cousins, the Morgado clan.
Will we do it next year?
I hope so!
It would be fun to make it annual event this year being our first.
Even Buddy had a good time!
Tomorrow, Christmas Eve!
Hope you all had a great holiday!
