Every year we host our one and only party (other than a kid birthday party) at Christmas.
I make a huge pot- well several- huge pots of gumbo weeks in advance and freeze them.
This year we had a ton of families come out to celebrate with us and it was so fun.
I got stuck by the stove most of the time, so my goal next year is to be better prepared so I can visit and take more pictures!

this was a poor choice because too many little hands could reach her at this level
