Roquemore Christmas 2009

This Christmas was kinda a strange one to be sure. Different maybe is a better word. The highlights for me were actually before and after Christmas. Christmas Eve was the best/worst. We had a Really Fantastic Homecooked Spread for Dinner with the Whole family and John's Fiancee Lee Anne. It was so Delicious and Delightful to be together. Worst part about it was earlier in the day, rushing around I Fell and twisted my knee. No big deal I thought at the time but a few hours later, right as dinner was starting, I couldn't stand on it. I had to be carried the rest of the night and on Christmas Day: crutches. So dumb. I do have many admirable qualities but I seem to be accident prone. Which I don't appreciate at all.
This is after the swelling had gone down 50%.
Hanging out on Christmas Eve.

For Christmas we packed up and drove to Lakeland to see my Grandmother who is almost 93 and had Christmas lunch in her Dining Hall which is nice, I guess, but I don't fancy it. We exchanged gifts at her place and hung out for a while. After we drove home, made some sweet sandwiches and watched ELF. Pretty chill. Things were pretty low key as the Wedding was the main focus of Life.
The other highlight of Christmas was the morning after. My Brother Brian (as seen above) made a feast of a Brunch for the Family. He is such a chef. Loves cooking and is so good at it. Scrambled eggs w tomatoes, sauteed onions, and sharp cheddar cheese. Homemade waffles & Biscuits. Bacon & Pears. Orange Juice & Apple Cider. Thanks BJ.
