We always have a big Christmas Eve Dinner around 8:00. The only thing missing was OS & MS. Dinner was ready, and they weren't home. CH & I thought they were downstairs, but it turns out they ran out to the store and were held up by an accident. I didn't get upset; we went ahead and ate our dinner so it wouldn't be cold, then we sat around and talked while OS & MS ate their dinners.
I think I mentioned in a previous post that the boys always beg to open a present on Christmas Eve. Well, this year was no different, except that we ended up opening all of the presents on Christmas Eve. We thought OS was going to have to drive to get his girlfriend on Christmas Day, so we went ahead and opened the gifts. The night was capped off by some roasting of marshmallows over my "little red campfire" that CH gave me:
We spent the rest of Christmas Day relaxing and getting ready for our big family vacation. Come back tomorrow for the post!
