We survived! Everyone seemed to be well fed and well gifted and left us old folks to recoup. Yes, we were tired. I may not cook again for awhile. Although I had really good kitchen help..especially with the clean up!
We picked teams and played Trivia..it is amazing what Grands learn not from school but from the movies..like how many times a year do Penguins have sex? “Once” replied Paige “I learned that from the movie Happy Feet.” Most of the family knows a very limited amount of Sports Trivia..other than Hockey, we know nothing of other sports. Only one of us knew what the Super Bowl Trophy was called. Presidential elections ran a close second to sports as a non category for all of us.
Andy cooked the Prime Rib as I have no knowledge of that kind of fancy smancy cooking. A mountain of Spaetzle disappeared into those Grands. They all enjoyed the non traditional Mudballs for desert. The mudballs were awesome especially with raspberries on top..they just might become a new tradition. Noah likes his water carbonated..one evening he shared with me..it wasn’t too bad.
Far Guy says he doesn’t have much planned for after Christmas. I have so many irons in the fire it is difficult to know where or what to begin first. I think I will just rest a couple of days.
