Up second is the Legere Family Christmas party on Christmas Eve. Where Aunts and crew toast with shots to the holiday. I think this year they topped it at three. The food is always fabulous, the company crazy, and the laughter merry.

Thirdly, was our Christmas at our NEW HOME! Technically, the house is our gift to each other. Although it's certainly the biggest present we'll ever buy each other, we did exchange stockings. With one addition to the house (my brother Chris) without a stocking we made do :-)
Abby has a blast opening gifts and Santa was obviously pleased on how wonderful she behaved all year.

Fourth, was a trip down to Woburn on Christmas day to celebrate with the Proctor side. Just missing Gwen, we all celebrated the holiday with more fabulous food, a great Yankee Swap, and a million more lovely gifts!

Last up is the Dee Family Christmas in Turner. Always a favorite with the Christmas Auction, we celebrate with Grampy's steak recipe, baked eggs, bacon and home fries. The auction is one of my favorite holiday traditions where folks contribute goodies to Santa's sack and we all bid pennies or candies on the items. We start off with 50 (this year it as 40) pennies and always end up with items we are psyched to take home. A bottle of wine for $.20? yes, please! Beef jerky for $.12?? Duct tape, flashlights, chocolate, baby rattles, etc!! It's true!
What a wonderful holiday season!!
