menu plan monday ~ january 9, 2012

My side of the family came over for our family Christmas party yesterday. The party had been scheduled for December, but my mother was hospitalized the day before we were to have the party, so we canceled. She passed away a few days later. We missed her at the party, but were glad for the chance to get together again. We did miss one sibling whose husband is having surgery this week, so the circle was minus her family. We are planning a sisters’ weekend for this spring. Hopefully, we’ll all make it for that!

My sister and her husband handed out the gifts.

My brother and his wife enjoyed looking at scrapbooks of clippings, cartoons, etc., that my mother had collected.

After dinner, we went through a few boxes of Mom’s things, including many hats. Twin1 loves hats and blue is her favorite color. She’ll enjoy wearing her Great-Ma’s hat.
