Christmas starts early…
This year for my family Christmas we had our fondue a little earlier than normal. My brother Jerry and his family are spending Christmas in Sunny Florida so we wanted to include them in at least some of our Christmas traditions.
This year my mom and dad did something really special. They are donating money for each grandchild(17)to Gospel for Asia. It is a very worthy organization that helps families recieve an animal. If you want to watch the presentation you can go here.
We included several of the kids into the adults table this year. They are now teens or will be soon so they made the big trip up….
We always do Cheese with cubed meats and bread along with vegetables.
