We had a wonderful Christmas Eve with family.

This is how I ended up displaying my grandmothers and moms old ornaments.

See the little crochet covers on the candle holders? Those are wristlets that my grandmother made for me a long time ago. They are too small for my wrist but I thought they looked cute here!

It was a feast of Italian food! For some reason I only got pictures of the pizza

We had mostacholi and Italian sausage too!

Then there was the sweets table.

Gah! There was a bunch of goodies left over, too, and no one wanted to take their stuff home! So Rich and I spend rest of the weekend in a sugar coma!

I did buy this little cake for Brad for his graduation.

Since there was no one around at the bakery to write on it I had to do it myself!

I'm no cake decorator but I think Brad appreciated it!

All in all it was a nice Christmas spent with family!

You were so clever to do the ornaments like that! And the decorations on the candle holders was also ingenious! Looks like you had some serious pigging out going on with your holiday celebration, LOL!

Oh wow, those pizza's look like my mom used to make; even before you could buy at the store. Yours look YUMMY even now at 6:30 A.M. :)

I'm so glad everything turned out well, and I know you enjoyed every minute. ((hugs))
