Welcome to the 2nd and final Christmas catch-up post. Enjoy!
Christmas Eve "Jesus Food" Dinner
We have the tradition in our not-so-little family of eating semi-traditional biblical food for Christmas Eve to remind us of Christ. We typically do flatbread, grapes, dates, honey, etc. We're working up to fish and locust (which are pretty much samesies to my offspring).

Sometimes during our Christmas Eve program (which isn't as involved as it sounds. promise.) Santa's elves drop bedtime-inducing goodies off on our doorstep)
A little help from Dad
As Georgie would put it, "nice and comfy."

(cheesy, I know...I just couldn't resist)
After picking up 9 dozen free beer bottles off craigslist a few months back (there's lots of home-brewers 'round these parts) and getting a bottle capper for Christmas, Spencer was eager to follow in his father's footsteps and start brewing some yeast rootbeer of his own.

He didn't die, so we knew we were safe.

Spencer quickly learned what happens, however, when you leave too much room for expansion in the bottles.
Ok, faithful followers....I think I might actually be all caught up from Christmas. yay! yay! Now I just need to fill y'all in on our recent travels, which, hopefully will be sooner than later.
