Holiday Plans 2012

What are your Holiday Plans this year?

I host a family dinner Christmas Eve. My parents and my sisters and family and our children will be there. I am making a fresh ham, turkey and all the trimmings this year.

Christmas day I make my BLT Casserole for breakfast. For dinner I make ham, string beans and potatoes in the crockpot.

Charlotte please share the recipe for the BLT Casserole

My turn to host the holiday party, we celebrate with my db's family the Saturday before. Christmas Eve & Christmas Day it is just the 6 of us. I make a breakfast casserole for breakfast and we have beef tenderloin for dinner

I've decided I am doing very little decorations, sending inexpensive gifts bought locally and made in the U.S.A. - If I lived in a different country, I would have sought-out products made in that country, and bought locally to whatever providence I was living in... supporting the financial growth of my community. And by sending them to our younger nieces & nephews, I am helping the postal companies keep people employed, at least for the holiday season. I already "sent" out a little over 30 Christmas; Holiday, and Chanukah paper cards - assisting with the jobs of the Postal carriers. And Lastly, I (we) are going to visit with family-friends we haven't spent time with since June 2010.

We usually spend a quiet day at home since both boys have their own families and someone if not all of them usually have to work on all holidays. This day won't be any different as DS1 has to work and DS2 also has to work their regular schedules.
Going to fix pork roast, potato salad, broccoli rice casserole and colesalw for supper on Christmas Day for DH and me. We haven't exchanged gifts since the boys were born and we only buy for DS's and their families and that is all done and delivered to their houses. I don't decorate any longer as DH never was involved in any of that and since it is just him and I and he could care less it is just too much work for no one to enjoy it. I actually have a "Charlie Brown" x-mas tree in the great room on top of the roll top desk though.

Last week I made the awesome "Mini Dreidel Cakes" recipe that was posted in the FC holiday forum. They turned out great and everyone loved them as our Chanukah dessert!

I honestly don't know if we'll have a real family Christmas this year.. Since losing Dad in June and Mom almost 3 years ago we won't be going to their home for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day dinner. I know dd and I will fix dinner for Christmas Day at home, but dd and family will be going to a cousin's home for gift exchange and they'll probably want them to stay for dinner also.
I don't really expect my other two dd's to come over Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, although dd#3 may surprise us since we didn't see any of them for Thanksgiving.
I'll be working Christmas Eve until 4 pm so we're trying to plan something easy for dinner.. I'm thinking about deli trays (if I can afford them), otherwise I might just pick up the stuff for homemade pizza and salad (I'd much rather have oysters and shrimp, but that's out I'm sure.. maybe after the New Year)
I have Christmas Day off, but go back to work at 3 am the day after so I'll be getting to bed earlier than usual (something I really hate)
Christmas dinner will probably be: turkey and ham, collards, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potato casserole, broccoli casserole, stuffing, corn (on the cob, if I can find it), dilled cucumbers. Haven't figured out the desserts yet.. planning on getting an Italian Cream Cheesecake we're carrying for Christmas, want to make a Tameo Cake (brown sugar frosting cake) and make or buy pumpkin and pecan pies too..

well as it stands, my dd as asked me to come to her house and found me a way to get there to spend chrirstmas with her. She wants me to stay a few extra days, but I am going to play it by ear and see how things goes for Christmas then make my decision.

Barb, have a super time with your family. Our Church and all the other Churches in our area are getting together to provide Christmas dinner for the shut in's and people that are alone or can't afford to make a big meal. Or people that are just lonely and want to be with others. I'm making at least 6 pies and at the moment have 8 dozen cookies to bake off and still more to make. this is going to be a free dinner for those that want one. I've never seen such giving people as these in this town.
