After a light breakfast, we were busy in the kitchen. Brad made a wonderful pizza dough, and we had a huge white pizza with hot Italian sausage, mozarella, and fried sage leaves for lunch. It looked so good, we forgot to take a photo!
Then I taught Connie how to make the 5 Minute Internet Bread. With this crowd, that warm bread and butter was a big hit!
For dinner, we had artichoke-lemon lasagna (frozen leftovers from the ST GTG), pork roast, cippolini onions, spinach-artichoke bread pudding, and the BEST dessert of 2007!
Then it was time for opening another tree full of presents! We opened a gazillion gifts, and took our annual "Bow Photo" (where everyone must wear the ribbons from all their gifts).
Brad had quite a pile...AGAIN!
Frosty liked his gift can!
Ego thought his snowman was the best!
Connie wasn't really surprised when her "Banjo" turned out to be a pizza peel!
John opened his gift can full of Starbucks stuff.
We played games again until 2:30 in the morning. I was undisputed champ, and really AM smarter than a Fifth Grader. We played "Apples to Apples" and a musical Version of "Catchphrase". We laughed so hard, we were unable to sing or talk!
