Family Time

December 22 - December 28, 2011

Enjoyed a good week with my daughter, her husband,
and his family in San Antonio.

I should have taken pictures of all the good food. My family's Christmas Eve traditional Polish meal of pierogies, polish sausage, mushrooms and beets alongside the traditional Tamales from Karl's Texas family. Liv cooked a Goose with Oyster dressing and cornbread stuffing with all of the usual side dishes on Christmas Day.

We all stayed at Karl's moms house, Thanks Liv.  I parked in the driveway and it worked out great.


  1. Interesting blending of cultures, tamale and pierogi. Not something you see on the same table often. Glad you had a nice Christmas.

  2. so glad you had a nice Christmas with lots of different kinds of food..perogies are a favourite here too!!

  3. I too found that food combination interesting. Then through in a Christmas goose as well. How nice that you get so many different tastes and experiences. Love your header photo.

  4. Wow, what a great holiday! Looks like a good time was had by all. It's always more fun when there are little ones around at Christmas. :)

  5. Great pictures of all the lights and the family. You can see everyone had a great time and great food. So happy you had a wonderful Holiday.

  6. Makes me wish I had gone to San Antonio before I left the area! I almost did... As soon as I saw your picture... I thought The Riverwalk! soooo beautiful ... haven't been in porbably 25 years....

    Nice family time ! ;)

  7. Looks like you had a good Christmas with family! I thought about going to SA to spend the time with my sister, but I can't do that kind of driving right now. I love the riverwalk! Thanks for sharing the pics, it's quite pretty with the lights.
