We had a WONDERFUL Christmas Eve. We spent the day preparing, cooking, and playing games. In the evening we went to my parent’s house for an AMAZING dinner—(ham and cheese sandwiches, broccoli salad, spinach salad, potato salad, potato chips, bbq chips, crab rounds, shrimp, black olives, green olives, cheese ball, cream cheese and hot jelly with crackers, veggie dip, deviled eggs, eggnog, chocolates, caramels, peppermint ice-cream with hot fudge, and more!) Then we watched Luke 2, opened presents, and played with the presents. The hit of the night was that the boy (adult boys) got remote control helicopters. It kept everyone entertained! Thanks mom and dad for all the great gifts, great food, and great company!
We came home, baked and set out our cookies for Santa, tore off the last link in our Christmas chain, read our last Christmas book, put on our matching pajamas, put the kids to bed, then Darin and I watched “It’s a Wonderful Life,” then we danced to “The Christmas Waltz”—I LOVE that song! It was a PERFECT Christmas Eve!
