Last night, Chris and I hosted Christmas dinner at our house for his parents, aunt/uncle and we invited my parents. Since we aren’t traveling or driving anywhere for Christmas this year, we brought the festivities to us.
And, since it was Christmas at my house, I did it the only way I know how — the Italian way. We cooked up a ton of meatballs and sausage (wish I would have taken a picture!), a huge pan of lasagna, homemade Caesar salad, and my mom brought eggplant parmesan. What a feast! Here’s a picture of the table before we all sat down:
We were lucky enough to borrow a table from our neighbor and add our little breakfast table to make a nice, big eating arrangement for the whole crowd.
Here is everyone enjoying themselves after full bellies:

Aside from the four bottles of wine, we made our way through Aunt Paula’s walnut pie and custard pie like nobody’s business. I think I substituted extra pie in place of wine. 🙂 It was truly special having everyone together laughing and just enjoying each other’s company. Maybe we’re starting a tradition?? Here are a few other pics:
|Everyone chatting. Clearly my mom is telling a story b/c she is using her hands 🙂|

In other news, Chris and I a so close to being done with the nursery. We have one last thing to hang and then I’ll share pics. Can’t wait! Less than four weeks to go!
