Our First Family Christmas Celebration....

May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!

Christmas for my family isn't anything fancy. We get together as a family and do away with all the frills. My only requirement is REALLY GOOD FOOD!...

This year we all decided to celebrate our first Christmas dinner in my daughter-in-law's house since her place was more spacious than my home. One Sunday dinner we all agreed on a color scheme which was Black for my eldest son's family, gray for my youngest son's family and I would be in a color that would stand out .. I chose red..

After 2 weeks planning what to serve on Christmas Eve... We all decided to have an early start to set up the camera equipment and food on the table.. I wanted it to be a POT LUCK dinner wherein my children will prepare at least two dishes each...

I asked my eldest son to prepare the pica-pica and some wine. My youngest son decided on the main course and dessert, and I brought in the main course.

In case you are interested in ordering some of the goodies we had on our Christmas dinner -- I will post the contact numbers/ and prices to make it easier for all of you.

Here are the food we served on Christmas Eve:
