  1. The food, the people and the pups all look amazing!!! I’m glad you’re feeling better.

  2. Really cute sweaters! Mom gave me one with the symbol and colors of my university.

    We had lobster tails in butter, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts.

  3. I’ve got to have some of your mom’s orechiette, then I’m going straight to the dessert table for some of Aunt Grace’s eggnog bread. That looks amazing. Everything looks amazing! Everybody looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Loving all the family pics, thanks for sharing! A very happy holiday to you all and best wishes for a healthy New Year!
