Christmas Crunch Day #2

Hi all. Hope that you all had a Very Merry Christmas--Happy Hannaka--or whatever you all celebrate. Yesterday we had my hubby's family and my Mom and I cooked lunch and ate off of real dishes with real silverware. There were 8 of us.

Today--well my clan comes. There will be 30 of us--Oh my how the family has grown. I made a 20 lb. turkey and a 10 pound ham yesterday. Today is leftover turkey and ham sandwiches--on you guessed it--paper plates, with plastic silverware cups etc. I don't think I have enough real dishes for this many. Will be pretty casual and hectic today.

Yesterday was quiet and relaxing with no little ones running around. But I can't wait till everyone gets here. The little ones really make Christmas. I will have 10 grandkids and 3 great nephews and 1 great niece. All my kids and their spouses--my bro and his spouse--my 2 nephews and their spouses. My Mom and my Aunt. I am looking forward to a really nice day.

Sorry no pics--maybe next time. No time today. Happy Knitting!
