On Christmas Eve we hosted an open house for anyone in our extended families who wanted to join us. We had a full house and everyone brought lots of good food. Some of Anita's kids were in town and my sister, Pat, brought her boyfriend Terry from Utah to join us.
Christmas morning Karrie, Ryan and the kids came down the mountain in time for breakfast with granny Ellen, Oscar, Jocelyn and the Delgado boys. It was great watching their faces as they opened presents. Later, we opened more presents with Karl, Gaye and their family. Even Lindsey's dad and Maureen joined us.
Prime rib dinner was at two and we really had a nice time enjoying everyone and eating MORE. Pat and Terry brought my mom over and Angela, Lee and Lucy drove up from Glendale to join us. Altogether, I think we had 28. Leo and Vickie came over a couple of days after Christmas.
Here are some pictures, I know there's a lot, but, hey....it's practically my only post for December:
Maryellen's wedding was exciting and we are happy to have Brandon as part of the family. Last weekend another celebration was held for them in Fremont and they should have a trailer bursting with wedding gifts to haul to Provo next week. We wish them much happiness, but will miss them while they are away at school. This is the guest book/ favor table at the reception.
This is the grooms cake. They also had a nice chocolate wedding cake with chocolate flowers and raspberry filling. All the food was yummy. David (my husband) , barbequed the pork loins which were served with the famous secret recipe "Bobby Q Sauce."
