Family Christmas Party

I thought I'd share a little from our family Christmas party now that obsessed hubby has finished cropping, straightening, and lightening. Two siblings couldn't make it, but the rest of us piled into our little apartment for a football game and good food. Since the party directly followed the Ole Man River half marathon, I had to pick something easy, so we had savory pies, salad,. fruit salad, and Christmas cookies. Since the pies were a great success and very easy for the hostess, I'll be sharing the recipes tomorrow. Maybe you'll be inspired for a last minute holiday meal!
Here are a few pictures from that afternoon:

We decorated Christmas cookies.

Attempted group shot...we never did get one with all 22 eyes open.

Sam and Melissa watching the game.

Matthew, Joey, Mom, and Abe posing by the buffet.

Me making a weird face...with pie.

Allowing Sam to be the photographer was a mistake.

Matthew getting Melissa some coffee. I love this picture!
