Galluzilla Fuels More Good Times

I'm sure you are just dying to hear how Galluzilla turned out. Well, much to my surprise, it was excellent! I decided to cook the 20 pounds (yes, still that much even with the less prime parts already removed) in an oven roasting bag, and that was a great choice. It was moist and tasty. I tried a new stuffing- apple sourdough, and that was good too.

We sat down to eat around 2 pm. With Loretta helping me the cooking didn't seem like such a drag... some help and someone to visit with makes it all much better.

Christmas dinner

After the table was cleared and the mess all settled, we played some games. Steve skunked Loretta and me at three games of Mille Bornes, and we laughed a lot.

Josh brought little Loopy over for the day. She is fatter than ever, but she actually let me pet her!

I know these scenes look like everyone else's family times, but we don't get to have them very often, and we are having a really good time, so forgive me for sharing so many.

Hope your Christmas was everything you wanted it to be!

that turkey looks so good.
I love all your shots. You just share as many as you want because it's fun to see what other people are doing to celebrate.

Chuck- well, we have our moments

All of our family shots are boring to everyone but us--but it is those moments for which we live for. My Christmas came the next day when the house was full of chatty teenagers. I didn't take photos, but my heart was full just the same. I get it, Sharkey.

I love seeing the family times. It was really special for me this year being with my Indian family...and now I really do have a village - as at least half the folks here are related. The food looked terrific.
