It's Christmas Eve - A Magical Night!


I just love Christmas Eve. There is something so magical about this night. The preparations are all done and we are settling into enjoying our family. The hustle and bustle has lead to quiet reflection of Christ's birth.

When I was a young girl this night was when we had a big spaghetti dinner and opened presents. Then on Christmas Day we went to my grandma's nephew's house for dinner. There would be about 30 people there and it was a fun time filled with family and laughter.

Our family is spread out now with us being out here and the rest of the folks being in IL. Stephany is with her dad for Christmas Eve. I am alone with the cats for a while and enjoying the peace. Missy and Christien will be coming over so we can go to Christmas Eve Service at 6 and then back here to watch a movie together.

Tomorrow morning will be stockings and presents, cinnamon rolls and juice, then ham and all the trimmings for dinner. We will celebrate the birth of Christ!

Merry Christmas!!
