Christmas was a little odd this year, since we got back from our cruise on Christmas Eve.

Santa must have been hungry!

After church we headed up to Moreland to spend the day with Rob’s family. The calm before the cooking storm…

I didn’t think to get a picture of the final product until my plate was half demolished. I was starving. It was totally delicious. All the hard work paid off. After hanging out some more we finally made our way back home late that evening.
