Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas!By
This year we travel to “Santa” Monica for our Christmas celebrations. It is one of the few times the immediate Sherwood family is all together. 🙂 This year we will have the joy of Paul’s sister and husband joining us right after Christmas day.
Here is the family picture from last Christmas at the lake house. I remember this fun time and insisting on the group shot despite objections of “Oh Mom!”
We are driving to Santa Monica this year. Close enough not need an airplane ticket. 🙂 I believe our son Jake has a Christmas photo in mind involving two JCW Mini-Coopers. You’ll just have to wait to see that one.
On another note, my friend, Lori, and I took the hotel crawl to see holiday decorations, particularly two life-size gingerbread houses. My favorite GB house was at the Hilton El Conquistador in Tucson to benefit juvenile Diabetes.
The walls were all made of gingerbread by the resort’s bakers. It took them 3 weeks to do all the baking. The decorative details are amazing.
Here is a “little” life-size gingerbread house trivia:
- 420 lbs. of flour
- 420 eggs
- 12 gallons of molasses & honey
- 120 lbs. of egg whites
- 550 lbs. of powdered sugar
- 718 lbs. of sugar
- 2.317 gum crops
- 120 lollipops
- 600 candy cane
- 15 lbs. of sprinkles
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Be safe in your travels and enjoy all your family and friends!
Love to all!
Note: This is the last post until after the New Year! Look forward to a re-cap of our holiday on January 6th.
