So every year we do Christmas eve at our house with my Mom. This year was no real exception. Although we had planned to go to a candlelight service at the church. (which we didn't get the house and food done in time, so my mom took the kids and went and we stayed home and finished up)
It was really nice. We had the five of us, plus my mom and her friend Rod. We had lots of awesome "once a year food" that we will be paying for on the treadmill for months. But it was worth every bite.
We ate (more like grazed) and visited. Then we opened presents.
Then the evenings festivities continue over at my in laws for the main event.
