"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Every year on Christmas Eve, we have a tradition to go to church at Westminster for the Christmas Candlelight service and then return to our home for a special Christmas Eve dinner, an exchange of special gifts, and then dessert before the night is over.

Each year the recipe is different but always eloquent and tasty.

Directions:
Directions:
The menus that are most favorite are Lasagna, Crown roast (It was beautiful coming out of the oven and delicious, too!).

At dinner we have a prayer and in our midst most always is Mary Kasiska and in later years Lawrence Brock has joined us as well. Mary is a very, very dear friend of our family. Our Christmas Eve would not be complete without Mary being there.

After dinner we exchange gifts and take a few pictures for memories sake. Then we eat dessert and call it an evening.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Most years after the dinner and gift giving is over, we have still had hours of work to do to get ready for Christmas morning. With grandchildren now their parents still are putting things together until wee hours of the morning. It brings back so many wonderful memories. Since Ben and Sarah are in Denver, we only have them every other year but when we do, it is a most joyous, wonderful occasion.

Dave and I are so blessed with so many things. That includes having Mom and Dad close by and able to take part in our daily lives. It includes our children and what they have become and the families they are making. It includes being Nanny and Goggy to our grandchildren. It most definitely and first and foremost includes the part that God has and does play in our lives as well. He has continued to take care of all of us all through the year and every year. Thank you, God, for being there for us.
