Usually on Christmas Eve we host dinner. We always have homemade (by Mike) raviolis. We started doing this, because Christmas Eve is when we usually celebrate with Mike’s older children ( if they happen to be in the country and whoever happens to be around usually my mom, sometimes Krissie.
Anyway this year due to scheduling we celebrated Murphy Christmas early and had ravioli then. So for Christmas Eve it was just us and my mom. I was going to just make some apps and hang out. My mom suggested going out to eat, to make life easier! What a great idea! It was nice not to have to spend all day cooking and all night cleaning. After dinner we came home for presents!!
After we opened all our fun gifts from nana and Uncle Joey! It was time to read “T’was The Night Before Christmas” read by Daddy from the very same book that was mine when I was a little girl.
Then it was time to leave out the cookies we baked for Santa, a tall glass of Milk, and carrots for the reindeer, well except Vixen. I heard he doesn’t like carrots.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
