Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Last night we went to the annual "Carol" party hosted by my cousin Julie every year. She always tries to include a couple of dishes my son and I can eat. This year she made chicken salad and this colorful vegetable dish with cucumbers, carrots and cherry tomatoes. I thought it was great.

This is one of the Carol cards. Julie made these cards 15 years ago (I've heard you can now buy them already made, but homemade is more charming). It's like Bingo, but with Christmas pictures. Gordon was old enough this year to play and he loved it. It's been something the five year olds and the eighty year olds can play. We always look forward to Carol. Do you have any fun family traditions?


  1. I love the idea of Carol Bingo! We're great fans of any board game in this house and bingo will surely get dusted off this Christmas - now I might make our own set with our Christmas cards.

    What a wonderful use for CHristmas cards.
