Hunter Family Christmas Extravaganza

The Hunter Family Christmas started with decorating mom's tree. She left it naked so we could all decorate it together.
Grandma Boufford made this angel tree topper along time ago, I love it, always have remembered it as a kid.
The whole Hunter/Stagg/Faw Clan
Stockings! My favorite part of Christmas! Mom made Addy Lou and LindyJean new stockings this year, they are awesome! Addy's is on the left.
Ear warmers!
The mad house of opening gifts.
I have been wanting a garden gnome.....how did Santa know! :) I can't wait to find a spot in the yard for it...any name ideas?
The Feast: Jo the head chef created a menu for a 4 course italian feast. I am sure Jo would describe this much better...it was awesome!
Course number 1: bruschetta (traditional tomato, olive tapenade, and an italian style hummus)
Course 2: Mom made a vegetable soup with bitter greens topped with pesto
Course 3: Jo handmade Gnocci with a browned butter sage sauce (this was especially delicious)
This was followed by a palate cleansing of mango and raspberry sorbet and then a feast of prime rib and asparagus. It was awesome!
I took the liberty of decorating the table, mom and Jo made the napkins and we decided on a traditional red and green schema.
