Fitzgerald Christmas 2009

This year the Fitzgerald side of the family had an early Christmas to accommodate for people being out of town and such (ahem... Nichole).  We gathered on December 13th at my mom and dad's home in Tehachapi and enjoyed a wonderful day together filled with enjoyable company and delicious food.  My contribution to the feasting was this pecan pie which turned out surprisingly good! 

We exchanged gifts and received some really great stuff!  Unfortunately from me my family all got cherished IOU's because I completely forgot to bring their gifts.

Over the past few years it's become a family tradition for the kids to decorate a gingerbread house at Grandma & Grandpa's house.  They had a good time and managed to eat tons of candy.  Some of the kids were actually pretty studious about the decorating while others did nothing BUT eat candy.  The final result was less than perfect but the kids very much enjoyed making it.

All in all a good time was had by all!  I can't wait for our next family get together.


  1. I'm glad there's no dripping snot in this post.

  2. Gingerbread houses are awesome. But I'd never eat one. Glad you had a good Christmas and time with your family!
