Christmas 2017

My family’s Christmas tradition of two meals, one on each side of the family, has spanned many years – I’ve lost count.

Thanksgiving 2014

Similar to past years, we have lunch at my mom’s side and dinner on my dad’s side. The vast majority of food is homemade (of course!) with my aunt and grandmother…
