Our simple decorations are up and Jerry is keeping cool in the refrigerator. Jerry is a 15 pound turkey that we will serve on Christmas day. I've been trolling the web for brining recipes and ideas for cranberry sauce. This is our first time hosting on the big day and we are pretty excited and probably over-prepared. We even bought our first puzzle.
My great grandmother gave me these mini-glass balls a life-time ago. I'm glad that a part of her is with us as we establish new traditions.
