Our funny family/holiday moments usually revolve around food... usually are messy and include food being destroyed. Once the family was together and mom dropped a pot of stew. It splattered across the floor, up the wall, and onto the ceiling! After a moment of shock, everyone laughed--except grandma. I guess she had a different sense of humor. She just walked into her room and stayed there the rest of the afternoon. LOL!
One thanksgiving mom was making a wellington (veggies and meat in a puff pastry crust). The knife she was using disappeared and she coudln't find it anywhere. When the pastries were done, we found the knife--imbedded in the bottom of the dough! I think that was the same year I dropped a pecan pie on the floor.
