      • Yes…the kids will be here early Christmas morning and then we will have dinner at Brian’s later in the day. My mom will be here Christmas Eve and Day and we will celebrate with my brother and his wife and some cousins here at our home Christmas Eve. We usually BBQ tritium and port tenderloins with a few sides. Been baking with the girls yesterday and getting all the last minute details addressed too! Hope to see you again in the new year…enjoy your beautiful family…I know your heart and arms will be full! Xo

        • Hey Debi– Your Christmas sounds pretty much the same as ours– Christmas with all the family at my bothers on Christmas Eve– love seeing all the nieces and nephews come in from here and there. And we’re having pork tenderloin. Trying a new recipe my friend Sally made for us. — hope it comes out!! Love to you and all your family. Merry Christmas!
