Family Christmas Update from Joyce

After much consideration…
On December 26th we will be serving a regular Christmas Turkey feast since we have a 28 pound turkey and a new convection oven. We will ask everyone else to bring something to help out plus dessert or goodie plate. I’ll make a Christmas punch and provide coffee and/or tea. Other beverages will have to be brought in if desired. We will be having stockings for the children and a made, grown, and produced in Oregon (or point of origin) gift exchange which should not exceed $ 20.00 for all who wish to participate. We’ll park our vehicles down in the field and will ask that you leave the space by the immediate entry open for Wilma. We’d love to have you here by noon. Stan wants to hike around getting cuttings and some of you might want to join him in that adventure.

  • Laura  says:

    Got it. Thanks for the info. We look forward to seeing you all there!

    I’m still gathering stockings so if you happen to have one that your children use regularly you might want to bring them along. I have the tags made for all the kids already so labeling is not a problem. If you don’t use stockings please do not go out and purchase any as I currently have four extra ….. we can also retag any of our adult family stockings for the day (you just can’t take it home!). Fun, fun, fun!

  • Laura  says:

    I made a return to all e-mail, but am afraid that it may have not reached everyone who may be doing the stockings for the kiddos. It just occured to me that I need to let people know to please avoid putting food in Dale’s stocking due to his extreme food allergies. I am sorry if that is a problem, especially since I didn’t give much warning.

    Tuyen and I will be bringing a veggie platter and a Dutch Apple pie.
