All over town, extended families are gathering for Christmas celebrations. Christmas falling on a weekend challenges out-of-town families to use this weekend for travel. We're no different. Today is family celebration #1. Out-of-state relatives are gathering at noon. So that pushed me to get some baking done and a big pot of cheesy vegetable soup ready to travel.
The good news: no packages to wrap or gift shopping to do. Just a gathering including three little great nephews, college kids who have survived finals, and the West Point nephew. I'm taking Dad some hummus for his Christmas gift. (Last of the big spenders, I know.)
We'll miss the California kids, the cousins gathering in the big city, and snow. Yeah, I guess you can't have everything.
