and my twin brother is home!!!
Otto’s flight got in at 7:30pm! He left LA at…7am this morning. Eesh. Not surprisingly, he was starving once he arrived at my parent’s house.
Mouth full trying to smile. Not quite working. (How is he so tall??)
Christmas Eve at my parent’s house can be enjoyed in Southern-vision. A lot like Techni-color…but Southern.
Traditional foods were had by all…including me! My Dad called me this afternoon and clued me in to bring a slice of gluten free bread, so that I could enjoy this:
in all it’s glory. My Dad’s Extra Sharp Pimento Cheese. Nom Nom Nom.
Washed down with my Mom’s specialty:
Festive Green Punch. Positively Delicious.
I am blessed to have a family that is thoughtful enough to make room for my gluten free-ness. My mom had a tin of gluten free sausage balls waiting. Heaven.
All that was missing was the other half of my family, namely my two sisters!! (Hint Hint Joan) Susan was working late and Joan and her husband Scott are “up North” celebrating with Lil’ Gluten Loves Me and family. But we’ll all be celebrating with each other on the 28th…I just hope I can hold off on eating all my gluten free sugar cookies :)
I hope you guys are all having a MERRY Christmas Eve. (Or as they say in The Holiday and Bridget Jones’ a HAPPY Christmas) Tomorrow I’ll be celebrating the birth of my savior and taking my FIRST of four days off from work!!! :) Hallelujah.
Now, it’s OFF to bed!! Parrish just informed me that according to Google Tracker, Santa is in Charleston, SC. So I better hurry!
