It was worth every hour traveled and every penny spent to get back to Boise for Christmas. There is truly nothing like being home for the holidays.
Our Christmas eve tradition [“wine at nine”] went off without a hitch. Dad and I had full glasses of red to kick off a lasagna cooking extravaganza at the wee hours of 9:00 am.
By 4:00 pm our house was full of family and our mouths were watering from the sweet smells of lasagna.
Games were played, gifts were opened and fun times were had by all.
Christmas morning held another fun cooking tradition that I will share with you tomorrow. It’s not of the healthy kind either, but goes back to my Italian roots.
On Christmas Night we warmed up by drinking a few of mom’s homemade hot buttered rums before visiting the Gardens A Glow.
Which was a great time if I do say so myself.
They turned the Botanical Gardens into a winter wonderland of lights. It was truly breathtaking!
It was truly a blessed Christmas.
As of Monday evening, we arrived back in Georgia and are resuming life as normal over here. I’m excited to get back to my normal running routine and looking forward to a whole new year of awesome!
