Every year one of our family celebrations surrounding the coming of Christ is having a "Shepherd's Dinner" on Christmas Eve. If you ask each of our children what a favorite Hodgman tradition is, they will include this one in their fond memories.
We have a wood worker friend who heard about this tradition from his sister-in-law and called us up to offer his services in making some wood rustic plates for us to use for the dinner.
Each plate is slightly different and will be just perfect for dishing our small dinner (that really has turned into a Mediterranean feast.)
I'm so excited!
