Yes, we had a White Christmas.  It was very pretty – and cold.

I spent my Christmas Holiday OFFline with my Tribe.  Didn’t touch the computer for two days.

And it felt great.

We hosted this year.  After Christmas Eve candlelight church service we had dinner.  Foods included a veggie tray with bacon avocado dip and smoked salmon, Boeuf Burguignon with sweet potato biscuits and 4 kinds of paleo cookies: sleighbells, cookie dough bon-bons, gingersnaps and mexican wedding cakes.

We feasted, popped open crackers, exchanged gifts and sat by the real fire while watching the musical yule log on TV.  LOL

Christmas Day brought more feasting on roasted chicken with green beans, squash, sweet potato biscuits (they were a hit!) and another platter of Paleo cookies.  Grandpa napped while the rest of us watched the Hobbit DVD until it was time for them to continue their journey to SIL’s in Nebraska.

Great fun was had by all, especially the kiddo who found out he’s going to Disney World and LegoLand Florida in February.   Woo-Hoo!  

Any recommendations for things to see, do and EAT (Paleo) are welcome in the Comments!
