Christmas and Sylvester celebrations

We had a great Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve in Oklahoma City, were our host's family cooked a huge turkey and ham. Paul proudly pointed out that the craving knifes were German made :) and we were also excited to see homemade Apfelstrudel.
Earlier in the day we helped our host make cranberry relish. We've been cooking a lot for the holidays. We had a lot of fun on Christmas day.
We even had Christmas stocking hung buy the fireplace with the family's. We helped open presents and our littlest hosts got some fun toys that were just our size. Our New Years/Sylvester celebrations were quiet, but we had a traditional New Year's Day meal. Black-Eyed peas, with ham and cornbread. Apparently you must eat black-eyed peas to insure a prosperous new year. The peas, since they swell when cooked, symbolize prosperity.
