Christmas Eve at the Lodge

Author: Suzy Smith  |  Category: Uncategorized

My family has been spending early Christmas Eve at the Lodge for the past few years. A lot of regular members come in, bringing a dish to share, and just hanging out before the family celebrations begin.

During the afternoon the Lodge gives away 3 pots of money, or actually the pots that weren’t claim throughout the year in the daily attendance drawings. The pots are 300 dollars each and I won one this year, which was really nice and shocking as hell, as I have only won 2 things, ever.

The boys were there, as you can see from the picture of Charlie in my Santa hat. He looked over at me just as I was snapping the picture and it turned out so adorable. Tre got way into being Santa and was Ho ho hoing at me.

And, I’ll write more about the boys on Christmas tomorrow.

Kid Pics and a Southern Meme

This is Charlie and Colson, and Colson with Santa.

Colson is not quite 2 and a cutie pie. Since he doesn’t live here, I don’t share as many pictures of him but, I love him just the same. He is a smiley little guy who is just starting to talk a bit more.

Miss Ladyloo posted these few questions on her site asking Southerners to answer the meme:

Biscuits or yeast rolls? Depends on the time of day, morning is biscuits, dinner is yeast rolls.
Cracklin’s or chitlin’s? Cracklins
“You might be a redneck…” or “Git’er done”? You might be a redneck…
Catfish or wide-mouthed bass? Catfish
For the ladies: camouflage or monograms (for the love of Pete, hopefully no monogrammed camouflage)? Camo but only my red camouflage dress (there are pictures of it around here, it isn’t scary like it sounds)
Hunt for deer or turkey? Deer, and take out as many of those car wrecking bastards as you can.
John Deere or Kubota? John Deere
Baptist or Methodist? Here’s where you find out I was born in NY, but have lived in the South for more than 24 years: Catholic.
Fried turkey or fried venison? Venison
