Christmas Eve Eve
And this is the 23 of December....making tomorrow the 24th! I have finished all my shopping..and have everything wrapped and under the tree. We are decorated and ready!! Dick found an old electric train up in the attic that belonged to our girls and has it set up on the dining room table. Thought the kids might get a kick out of it.
Tomorrow, I am cooking...the Christmas menu is set...so I will do all I can ahead of time so I can enjoy Christmas Day. Yesterday, I went to the kids' house with the sugar cookie stuff...they usually come out here, but because of Kathleen's surgery, I took it all there. Had a big time as usual...I think I enjoy it as much as they do. Decorating sugar cookies is an old family tradition. When my girls were little, they would sometimes invite one friend over to decorate with us.
I didn't get this finished yesterday, so will continue with it today. We had a wonderful day with the kids. Andrea spent the night...Marti and family came over about 11:00..we did stockings and then presents while dinner was cooking. After eating we played a couple of games the kids had gotten for Christmas. Much fun had by all!! Then, before we knew it, it was evening and time for them to go home...football game to watch and dog to let out!
