~Monday, Christmas Eve~ We celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve this year, once again at the home of my sister and her husband, and once again the decorations, the food, and the company were superb!

In a change from the traditional turkey and ham holiday meal, not unlike our Thanksgiving meal, Vivian and Jeff made the most excellent substitution of filet mignon, twice-baked potatoes, a salad, rolls, and a killer blueberry-pineapple cobbler dessert. They also sent us home with some turkey and one or two sides from Honeybaked Ham so we wouldn't have to cook on Christmas Day either!

Here's a photo essay of the gathering, whose decoration theme this year was:

(The Vegetable Salad was long gone by then,
and the Blueberry-Pineapple Cobbler was yet a twinkle in our eye.)
