Catching Up Part 3

Here we go… Christmas Eve, Christmas, NYE and New Years.

Christmas Eve is spent with my Dad. We are Austrian, so our dinner is ALWAYS schnitzel, chicken schnitzel to be exact. I am in charge of the schnitzel and making sure everyone has a drink πŸ˜‰ , stepmom is in charge of everything else! We eat our glorious dinner, then open presents, take a family photo then eat dessert and drink some more.

Christmas is spent at mom’s house and I am in charge if the mashed potatoes…we have the usualΒ schmorgesborg of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans with red peppers, crescent rolls, vegetable tray and dessert. Then we exchange gifts, I love watching people open presents!

This year, for New Years Eve, we did a Mexican feast at my Dad’s (to remind us of Cabo San Lucas), complete with chicken, steak, shrimp, tilapia, tortillas, lettuce, queso, salsa, black beans, peppers, onion, beer and margaritas. After dinner we went out to a bar and had a champagne toast. I am so cool!!! Hanging out, partying and having adult beverages with the fam is super cool!

New Years was spent sleeping in! Annnnnd I think we are all caught up! So, how was everyone else’s holidays???
