Merry Christmas at Grandma's House!

Merry Christmas Everyone!


Well, the family got together tonight to celebrate Christmas and have dinner at Grandma's house. Dinner consisted of Galumpky's ( stuffed cabbage in tomato sauce), Kielbasa, Italian Sausage, Smoked sausage, sauerkraut, boiled potatoes, corn and green beans and a huge lettuce and tomato salad. My Aunt Sally and Uncle Ed came with my cousin Steve and the gang loved the food. I think Ed had a piece of most of the pies and also a piece of cake.

Amber brought a couple of her music CDs and we had fun beebopping to some of the hits on it. Caroline and I really like the new song by PINK, called "SO WHAT". It has a great beat and we were really bopping to that one. After dinner Amber, Darin, Matthew, Sarah and Amanda (my step granddaughter) were sitting around our stereo playing more of her new music. The kids played checkers on the table in our pool table room and were chatting.


Here is Frank and Caroline after they just come in.

This is Darin by the Buffet counter with the food on it.









Here is Matthew and Sarah. Aren't they getting big? Sarah will be 12 the end of January and Matthew will be 10 the middle of January. How time flies!








How cute! Amber giving Darin a hug!

My two girls! Caroline and Wendy.







It was my delight to have the whole family together with me tonight and be one together again. With Caroline's work schedule, working her both day and night each week, we always have to check her schedule before we can plan a day like today. I'm just to happy to have all those that I love so much getting together with me for a day. Makes all the work cooking worth it to me.
I hope however you celebrate the Holidays that everything comes out as great, or greater that what we have had!

Thank you for the visit to my blog. It looks like you had a wonderful time with all those grandkids.

And that menu . . . Yummmm, it reminds me of my days teaching in Livonia, Michigan. Polish food was very much a cultural pleasure in our school.
