Christmas 2013

I hope you had a great holiday with family and friends!  I ended up going to the city (Edmonton) to my brother's for Christmas this year.  My Grandparents were visiting from BC (on their way to their winter home in AZ) so I took them to Edmonton the day before Christmas so my brother and I could spend some time with them.  

Gramma & I making her famous peanut butter pie

 On Christmas Eve we all made pumpkin tart's and peanut butter pie from Gramma's cookbook.  I had so much fun, not only baking with my dear Gramma, but also with my brother and Grampa as well!

On Christmas Day I made herb & butter turkey and gravy, Brian made mashed potatoes, and Gramma made her stuffing, roasted sweet potatoes, and brussels sprouts.  All in all it was a great dinner, and it was really nice spending the day cooking with my family. 

The Dinner

Marc and his Dad were still busy working on our new floors all the way up until Christams Eve, so they ended up coming for dinner on Christmas Day, as did my Dad and his girlfriend Roxanne.  It was really nice to seeing everyone together!

Here are the Pumpkin Tart's that we were making on Christmas Eve!  The recipe came from my Gramma's cookbook using her No Fail Pie Crust


After dinner, we all exchanged Christmas Gifts around the fire, which was the perfect way to end the day.

So tell me, how did you spend your holiday this year?
