We had to take our Christmas pictures twice. The first time was a disaster! The second time around was still a disaster, but we managed to get two half way descent pictures. For those of you who didn't get one, here you go!

I am not about rewarding my kids when they act up, EXCEPT when it comes to taking pictures. Desea was only happy when she was holding these keys.
This isn't our usual Jazzy either, she would not smile in front of the camera!
This isn't the best picture of our girls, but Lex and I look pretty good.

I'm such a slacker!

Procrastination is not my best quality.
This post is really late, and so are the ones to come.
Unfortunately I am always saying
"Better late than never!"
Because Lex and I are too poor to buy our family presents for Christmas,
we decided to start a new tradition . . .
This is our fourth year having this Christmas dinner.
Every year it gets bigger and bigger.
More family means more lobster and more food.
Starting in October, Lex free dives for the lobster.
This year we cooked about 75 lobsters.
On the menu . . .
Homemade Rolls
Crawfish Corn Chowder
Fruit Salad
Mac Salad
Fried Rice
Grilled Lobster
Lobster Dynamite
Dessert Buffet

These are the Lobster Dynamite. Lobster and crab mixed with a
dynamite sauce and then baked. Mmmmm!

Grilled Lobster!

The best ever fried rice.

Desea has a sweet tooth just like her Papa Red. This is how she started off the night.
