The dining room is set up for Christmas Eve dinner
The Swedish Cardamom Wreath bread is baked and ready for decorating on Christmas morning. I made the rest of the dough into dinner rolls, one pan for Christmas dinner, one for the freezer.
Now we are ready for the main events!
The kids will arrive before noon on Saturday and be here with us while Jill goes to the Seahawks game and Jake works for UPS delivering last minute packages. SIL Jan will arrive sometime in the afternoon. We are hoping everyone will converge by dinner time, when salmon, crab and steak will be on the menu.
Christmas Eve will flow into Christmas Day when we all gather at Jill's house for breakfast, gifts, playing games, napping, cooking and eating Christmas dinner.
As I sign off for a few days, I want thank all of you out there in the
virtual world for being such good friends. Even though we don't actually meet, I know you as real, caring, intelligent people who have enriched my life.
From my home to yours, I wish you happiness, love, and a light spirit as we celebrate our holidays, whatever and however that may be.
