Scenes from the busiest day yet
Put a fork in me. I'm done.
I'm going to have to plan much better for next year because doing all of this baking on our dating anniversary really kind of took away from it, so I apologize to you, Mr. But we did get to do our favorite thing that has been a tradition every year...decorate cut out cookies.
|Ready for action|
|Ready to be put away in containers.|
|The ones I iced for tonight's get together with my mom.|
|Made a new recipe for cinnamon rolls from a 1933 cookbook. Fingers crossed they don't suck for Christmas morning for us and my mom. (The ones with nutmeg on top are egg nog frosting)|
|I love these flowers I grabbed at Trader Joe's. I mixed 2 bouquets. One white mix with greens and then I grabbed some red tulips to mix in. I put them in a mason jar vase. I love flowers!|
I want to wish you all a Happy Christmas Eve! This is it! For me, this is the day of the year I love and tomorrow night, I'll probably be in a heap in the corner crying because it's all over. But until then, enjoy the holiday and the moments that make the day special. We have an appetizer spread with my mom, open presents, listen to childhood Christmas music, maybe we nap depending on the food coma and if the lights are out with the tree lit. She'll leave around 10ish and the Mr and I will snuggle on the couch asking where the hell the month went and trance out in the tree lights until it's time for bed. I'll leave a cookie for Santa (shut up) and when we wake we'll utter the same thing we've uttered from our favorite Christmas movie, Home Alone 2..."it's Christmas mornin', man."
Make a promise to yourself to take 5 minutes to plug in the tree and enjoy the lights, light your favorite candle, enjoy a cup of cocoa or snuggle with your sweetie. You deserve it!
Merry Christmas Eve!
What are you doing tonight?
