Home Again, Home Again

We spent a lovely couple of days at my parents house, which is in the town I grew up in.  My parents hosted Christmas lunch, but everyone brings a dish or two.  All my favorites were on the buffet line: turkey, ham, vegetable casserole, spinach casserole, creamed potatoes, dressing, scalloped oysters, broccoli salad, kale salad, cranberry sauce, yeast rolls, and giblet gravy.  And we had a whole table full of pies for dessert.

After the feast we played Catch Phrase.  My mother's team always won when we kept score, and on Christmas Eve when we didn't keep score my mother and my grandfather beat my husband and my father at catch phrase.  My mother claimed that she was keeping score in her head, but my husband doesn't agree.  It's fun drama.

Our children, Dooley and Trigger, spent a lot of time in time-out over the course of the two days because they could not learn to enjoy my parents chocolate lab Blue.  Trigger and Dooley aren't used to big dogs. They were nervous.  Blue is a very sweet dog.
