Happy New Year ~ 2009

The Christmas Holidays are over, Whew, I made it thru another year.

Mailed my cards to family and friends far away.

Wrapped our presents on Christmas Eve with my daughter NiCollette.

On Christmas Eve we made our Breakfast Casserole and French Toast Casserole, and all our pies and cakes.

Christmas morning, we slept in until 9. Put our breakfast in the oven, turned on the coffee and set the table for breakfast, after breakfast we went up to the 3rd floor of our home and opened presents by the Christmas Tree.

After we exchanged our gifts, we headed back downstairs to get ready for Christmas Dinner.

We cooked Prime Rib Roast, a Spiral Ham.

Baked potatoes with sour cream, bacon bits and cheese

Green Bean Casserole, butternut squash, buttered corn rolls and butter

Desserts: Pecan pie, chocolate creme pie, cheesecake and Red Velvet Cake

After dinner we talked with family and friends and relaxed.

What a wonderful day we had, I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Another year is upon us, I hope for good health for family and friends a wonderful happy and prosperous New Year

And remember on New Years Eve when you return home, have something in your hands when you enter your door, it is an old custom that my mother always followed, it means you will have a prosperous New Year

Till we meet again~Blessings~Cheryl

What a beautiful Christmas, so peaceful and snug! Thank you for sharing it!

The foods sound delicious!

Glad to know the folklore about having something in your hands when returning home on New Year's Eve -- and don't forget to eat some blackeyed peas and cabbage ("folding money") on New Year's Day, too!
