Are you and your family very traditional ? Will there be a Xmas Eve breakfast lunch and or dinner,? What about on Xmas day and the days that follow ?  Lets not forget New years.

What meals will be shared ? Who cooks, and who just comes to eat ? lol 

I would love to hear your families way of enjoying the Holidays 

Are you in need of more delicious recipe ideas for the family ???

For Christmas Eve it just want ever we feel like  maybe some cake for dessert a hold over from when I use to fix a birthday cake for Jesus every Christmas Eve when Jeff was little.

For Christmas the boys get they ham which is just warm up . We will also have cornbread stuffing , glazed carrots,  rolls , and Christmas Punch. We will have pecan pie for dessert.

For New Years Day we will have black eyes peas ( for the guys for good luck) Corn and beans mix together for me ( for good luck) some more cornbread stuffing, some ham or chicken.

We go to my in-laws for Christmas and they don't have a meal they make every year. Depends on what they feel like making.  MIL has made a lasagna the last few years as well as a ham.  Growing up we had a smaller version of Thanksgiving dinner - turkey but less of the side dishes - on Christmas day.  Often mom would also make a ham in addition to the turkey.

Our immediate families' tradition is a breakfast casserole for breakfast/brunch on Christmas Day.  This year I plan to throw some chili in the crockpot so we can eat whenever we feel like.

Our tradition on Christmas is a ham with a few traditional side dishes, like green beans, mashed potatoes (crock pot for warming) and rolls. Pie or left over fudge and cookies for dessert. This year I am thinking of a breakfast casserole before chuch.

For New Year's day, it is pork (can be loin, roast or chops), mashed potatoes and TONS of sauerkraut with butter and brown sugar. (Yum!!)

Christmas eve is the big family get together and it's meat and cheese trays with crackers, mini weenies, chips and dip and wings. With egg nog and sparkling cider. It's not really a sit down kinda event as we spend most of it doing our version of the Chinese gift exchange.
And I think for dinner Christmas day I'll make pizza dip my husbands favorite.

My grandgirls get to stay home and enjoy their presents as their fathers also did. We will be getting together on 26th (Natalie's birthday). We open presents and snack play with gifts and eat, snooze a little, and it is time for Nattie's party. Gruess what?! Another round of presents and we will eat desert, again.
