Christmas Evening - 2011
It was another wonderful Christmas for the Browning Family. We worked hard at decorating this year since we were host a party and Christmas dinner.
Sigrid did an extra nice job on the front door area. We picked up a sled and, after this photo was taken, a pair of ice skates off of Craig's list to add to the holiday feel.
Inside was also warmly decorated. Sigrid does a great job!
We waited (as hard as it was) to open presents until after all the guest left after dinner so the tree would look nice.
This is a montage of some of the nine crock pots that we had in service for the dinner. We had 22 family members here for the meal.
Time to eat. We had a somewhat traditional meal. Instead of ham or turkey, we had beef shoulder roasts. Sigrid used three different kinds of crock pot seasonings so everyone could find a favorite. My favorite was the red wine/mushroom roast. I
don't have the right words to describe just how good it tasted.
Sigrid had already started surgery on the cake before I got over to take a picture.
We had tables set up in every available space to seat the 22 people.
