Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve started off the same way it’s started off every other year – with lots of food, mimosa’s and a loud family!

After we ate like we were going to the electric chair we sat down to do our annual cousin present exchange.

I received a special gift from my Aunt.

A teddy bear made of one of my Uncle Chucks dress shirts. He passed away in 2008 so this bear holds a special place in my heart.

Another creative gift was this custom calendar my aunt made – It has pictures from my bridal shower and our wedding on every month.

Love it!

After presents and eating we somehow all got dolled up in record time to attend a 5pm Church service.

We went to the kids service where they did a play and I’m pushing to make it a tradition. I’m a kid at heart 🙂

Dinner was next on our agenda and this year we chose Four Seasons Grille in Crofton.

The food was outstanding so I plan to do an entire post on it (20 people equals a ton of food on the table!) I ordered the tuna mignon with mashed potatoes & vegetables.

Unfortunately I ate too many appetizers and dipped too many pieces of bread in oil so I was stuffed by the time this came out. I had 1/4 of the tuna steak and packed up the rest to go (which I’ve already eaten). DELICIOUS!

My Grandma gives us Christmas jammies every Christmas Eve so we changed into them after dinner and went to bed around 10pm waiting for Santa!
