We have a White Christmas in Southeastern Missouri this year.  The weather isn't terrible, but it is snowing at the moment and the ground is already lightly blanketed in white.  It's really pretty and exactly what my brother wanted.  I have to admit that it is kind of nice.  I'm at my brother's house right now, having used his oven to make the broccoli casserole since the oven at Mom and Dad's is occupied by a huge turkey.  I'm hoping that my parents and brother like the casserole.  Usually we have a broccoli casserole that is laden with condensed soup and other such bad-for-you things.  Mine has cottage cheese, sour cream, and good things.  I don't know if I salted it enough, but that can be dealt with.  With my family my cooking is either hit or miss--there is no inbetween.  I'm a great cook, but you just never know.  I'm even a little nervous about this one.  I've never made this modification to the mushroom casserole I make so I guess we'll see.

Christmas morning was fun.  Dad and William got mom good by hiding a ring inside a deep fryer that they bought her.  William got Dad even bigger, though, by putting his Vietnam medals in a shadow box display (that he did himself).  Dad cried.  I got it on video.  It was pretty impressive.  Santa was good to everyone (I got a steam cleaner!) and it was a good morning.

I've been sick off and on for a few weeks.  This is my second round of antibiotics since Thanksgiving, but I think I'm on the mend.  I'm looking forward to getting back to normal, that's for certain.

Happy holidays, all!
