Next to our love for our Triune God, is our love of Family and celebrating together on any and all occasions. Christmas has always been a BIG celebration in my life and even dating back to when my parents, Henry Harrison & Pauline Errett, would always come from New Mexico to celebrate with us.
This was the 2nd year that Marc hosted our gathering at his & Aric's lovely Owasso home.
The weather forcasts were for perhaps as much as 8-10" of snow arriving by mid-afternoon. Mickey & I arrrived about 9:30 a.m. to help set up. I had even brought my toothbrush, pj's and sweats in case the storm did come and we had to stay overnight, rather than chancing the 40 mile drive home on icy, snowy roads.
When Marc first offered to host the celebration he was going to have a meal catered in for us but Benny & Jacque decided they wanted to cook so we'd have left overs. Our menu was as follows:
Jacque & Benny: Turkey Breast & Spiral Ham & Benny's famous green bean casserole.
Mickey & Susan: Susan's homemade family recipe of Cornbread Dressing, rolls & cranberry sauce.
Marc & Aric: Yummy mashed potato's fixed with sour cream & cream cheese, coffee and multiple choice soft drinks - & Sparking Grape Juice both Red & White
Dave & Denise: 2 plates of assorted home made cookies & candies.
In other words a GRAND FEAST and left overs for everyone!!
Prayer offered by Mickey, as always.
