From my daily journal - December 25, 2005
I woke late at 10 o'clock and got up to feed the kitties. Next I did some arranging and straightening to get ready for the party. at 3 I got the roast going and prepared the squash. Folks arrived at 3:30. Phil, Jan and Dave went over to see Steve's house while Nora and I worked on dinner and hors d'oeuvres. When they returned we all talked while I finished dinner. Dave made the potatoes. The roast was scrumptious. We all got along very well and had a great time. Folks left early and Steve stayed to play games with us.
