Christmas Day 2005

Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.

Mitch & Sue have been cooking together for years. Paul's role is official greeter and drink provider.
The smells of the kitchen at Christmas are wonderful as grandma continues to prepare other delights for the family!

In fact, Mitch has his own sink and working area in the kitchen... right behind his stove (which is in our will).

Here Mitch is slicing up the ham ad of course his audience, the "Meat Man Support Group" is  watching.
Pinky's stripe is from her back surgery where they had to shave her to get to the backbone.
Sarge is in "pouncing position" meaning he is ready for the ham to be delivered to his feet!
