Fast, Frenzied Family Time

This year was way too wonky!  Only part of my KY gang was able
to come home for Christmas.  They were literally here for only 29 hours! From
 4:00PM on Saturday until 8:45PM on Sunday.
So, instead of slaving in the kitchen making a traditional Christmas dinner, I opted
for a "Christmas Brunch".  Paul did the scrapple (you can't come home and not
have scrapple) and an egg casserole.  I managed the rest ~ a blueberry french toast bake,
fruit salad, OJ, cocoa, and coffee.
Hopie helped with the cocoa, and Rease, Erica and Helena set the table.

 We ate til we burst.

 We served ourselves.

 We drowned our french toast with Blueberry syrup.
We drowned our scrapple with regular syrup.
We savoured our cocoa.

We discussed the benefits of eating blueberries.
We posed for the camera.
We laughed.
And we missed those that weren't here.

Then, just as quickly as they came, they were gone.  Just like that.  In the blink of an eye.
