Herlevi Family Christmas Party Highlights...
The menu: soup in bread bowls. We had 3 to chose from: Pork Chile Verde (mine), clam chowder, and chicken noodle. Yum. Salad. and a cake from Southern Living (always a good choice). The table was beautiful. But, as usual, we were too hungry to stop and take some pictures.
Cole was in charge of the cracker plate. He decided to make a tower with the Ritz. Whatever. It kept him occupied for a while...
Waino got a history book
It was Grandma Bette's birthday as well. Rick had her name for the Christmas gift exchange. We had picked up a couple of vintage Pyrex bowls at one of the antique stores in MT a few months ago. They were part of a set that she had started collecting. We were pretty excited to find them for her.
She also got showered with Birthday gifts.
Kristine got a chest to keep her treasures in.
Kristine gave Cole a Thomas lunch box filled with snacks. I can't really believe it, but he still has some snacks left. And he hasn't put the box down for 3 days.
And, because I was the one taking pictures there is no documentation of my gift. So, I will leave you hanging until I can get outside tomorrow and take some pictures of my recycled Christmas gift. There's a story...
