the much-overdue christmas post

Given it's 15 days into the new year, I figured it's about time I give a recap of our Christmas with Jon's family.

It's Polish tradition to have a meatless Christmas eve. Since several of us 'kids' don't like fish, the family has catered to our needs with french fries, macaroni and cheese, pierogies, etc. We have a feast (followed by a 2nd feast of dessert) then exchange gifts. It's always really fun and Jon's family is priceless.

Typically, since my family celebrates Christmas early, we spend Christmas day in Youngstown with the Puerto Rican side of Jon's family. They are hilarious and I love being exposed to a different take on Christmas dinner--pork, rice and beans, plantains, etc. I'm particularly fond of plantains.





Everyone!!


This Christmas was definitely a memorable one. We are so blessed to be surrounded by our families and friends and are very aware of how loving they've been to us over the past several years.
