a festive mess, but it was a blessing to have so much help with the baking!

For Christmas dinner, it was the same crowd, minus the girls. We had turkey breast, mashed potatoes, buttercup squash, and homemade cranberry orange sauce. Same dessert.

And then after that, we went over to our local daughter's home and opened gifts, played games and ate snacks with their family. Took a cookie and fudge tray there too.
The day after Christmas, we went out for breakfast and then did a bit of after-Christmas shopping. I'll post separately about that if I can remember to get some pictures of what we bought before it all gets put away. So that was our celebrating. Low-key, but enjoyable and meaningful, with lots of family time. Hope yours was the same!
