My parents came to my house for Christmas. I was so excited to prepare the house and menu for the grand festivities. Brad came for Christmas eve and we had seafood gumbo and watched Christmas movies. On Christmas day, we went for a walk, and of course, shopped for the next few days. My mom insisted that I take some pictures of my house. I don't quite know why, I think she was just caught up in the moment. So here are some. If you'll notice the placemats in the table setting are huge cabbage leaves Brad brought from his garden.
