Family Christmas Dinner

Well I was wrong. The theme turned out to be a “Coney Island Christmas”. Debi rented a hot dog warmer, borrowed a popcorn machine and we built our dogs and nachos. Debi did make mom’s famous potato salad.  She hung up photos she printed of amusement parks. But the best part was we had a good family get together.

I haven’t had much to write about lately. Or maybe it’s that what I do have to say I put on Facebook.

My sister Debi, who my mother lived with, is having her annual family Christmas dinner. Debi always has a theme dinner and keeps it a surprise from her guests. For example last year it was Mexican and the year before seafood. She sent us individual emails telling us what to bring so we couldn’t  “put 2 & 2 together”. My daughter is bringing my Mom’s chili and I was told to bring some type of green salad. She told us all that we needed to dress in ugly Christmas wear or beachwear.

I am guessing since my mom loved the beach and LOVED Christmas that the theme and the menu has something to do with her. This will be our first Christmas without her. It will tough but we will have our memories to share.

I will take my camera and Flip video to record our day.

  1. I know how you feel about blogging. Haven’t had more than a sentence at a time to write about in ages.

    I sense that the theme is what you think it is. First Christmas without, but you know she’ll be there. Sharing the memories is what it’s all about.

  2. Sounds like a fun day!

  3. It was fun! All siblings were there and several nieces and nephews. Only my niece in Charleston and her family were missing.
