Florida Life, The Family

Christmas Day 2018

Christmas with grown kids is so much more relaxing! We all leisurely woke up around 10am and wandered in to the kitchen for Christmas morning Omelets in a Bag.

We did this two years ago (last Christmas we were on a cruise so skipped the new tradition that year), where you add raw eggs with whatever ingredients you want to a baggie labeled with your name, mix it around, seal tightly with the air removed and then drop the baggies in boiling water for 13 minutes. Everyone gets a personalized omelet that is ready at the same time!

Afterwards, we gathered around the tree for a reading of the Christmas story.

Our family does a Secret Santa exchange where we draw names so you only have to buy for one person, so the gift giving is not crazy (not counting goodie bags from me and Grandma Sue for each of the kids).

We spent the afternoon outside playing Christmas Bingo.

Then it was time to make our annual Chicken Fricassee dinner.

I taught Kameko and Avram how to make the homemade noodles.

Kelly took a turn too and Grandma Sue showed us all how the expert does it! It was a definite team effort.

Carl contributed by washing all the dishes for us.

After dinner, we played some 4-Up and 4-Down around the dining room table.

It was a beautiful, sweet family day spent with those we love.
