Ugh. It will probably be spent with my mil ( insert frustration here) then a quiet house.
I miss christmas with my family.
Early morning, my mother would be up starting breakfast.
I would wake to join her about 40 minutes or so after she got up. Coffee was hot and always too sweet that day.
Pancakes with fresh berries
Slab of pork "bacon"
biscuits / gravy
and peppermint candy.
Nothing too fancy, just large amounts.
We would eat on that all day. Coffee was non stop and people were everywhere. Morning time was always just me, mom, brother , grandmother and maybe my aunt. By the afternoon cousins, other aunts, uncles, neighbors, friends and strays (
) would bein the house and it would be noisy. Full of paper, toys, plates of food, coffee, alcohol, cigarette smoke , you name it.
I miss that kind of holiday. Maybe some day I can recreate that myself.
