Grandma Diane's Christmas Party

My Mom always has such fun parties. Her annual Christmas party is one we all look forward to.
The usual food spread, The usual crowd, The usual night of endless laughs...
With the mass amount of people in our family we always draw names for the gift exchange but Grandma always buys for everyone... She puts so much energy into buying the perfect gift for everyone all year and is so excited to give it to everyone. She always does such a good job.

My Mom has this tradition that she had her whole life and passed onto all of us.
You put out a pan of raisins, pour brandy on top, light it on fire then you grab out the raisins.
Sounds a bit crazy? Yes.
Sounds like an activity a couple 8 year olds thought up?! Definitely.
But we all love it and cant wait to do it every year.
Its called the Raisin Grab.

The rest of the night was spent laughing until we fell off chairs,
Dancing until we fell of chairs, 
Telling stories, 
and just spending time together.
Love my family.
