Family Christmas

We headed up to northern Indiana on Friday night for a family Christmas that was on Saturday. Husband took a few pictures of my parent's house the night before the mayhem began.

I like this one because it just looks so warm inside...

And then there was Saturday- filled with tons of food and bourbon slush.  Bourbon slush is just amazing-I-need-three-glasses-of-this goodness.  I have a friend who introduced it to her family, and now they have it at all of their family gatherings. 
Instead of the usual name-drawing that occurs each year, we decided to each bring a few presents and then play games to win them, after drinking most of the bourbon slush.  About 20 minutes into a "game" of mass confusion, Husband ended up with earrings, and I ended up with batteries, which my Grandfather was very proud of bringing, apparently.  I think Dax hid upstairs during most of the games, because I'm sure his poor huge ears just couldn't handle our loud mouths!

I wish I had a picture of the family tree quilt I posted about last time.  *sigh*  After I gave it to my Grandmother, I had an "oh crap" moment, where I realized I had forgotten to take a picture of it. I'm sure I'll get one eventually, but until then, you'll just have to be surprised at what the mini-quilt looks like if you win it!

We like your picture of the night sky, it looks beautiful. Could you post your receipe for bourbon slush please? We think Mum could use some occasionally and we wouldn't mind some as well.
