Christmas Eve

I love Christmas Eve. It all started when we woke up at my Mom's house to the smell of her biscuits and gravy breakfast being cooked. After scarffing that down, Grace opened her presents from Mamaw.

We hurriedly packed all of our stuff BACK into the car and set off for Price before a snow storm moved in. I had a huge melt down when part of Grace's Christmas present, a mirror, broke in the car. Thank heavens there is a Wal-Mart in every town... even Price. We spent the middle part of the day just hanging out and enjoying the company of our family. In keeping with tradition, we ate sandwiches and snacks just before beginning the evening program and the crepe paper ball. Grace opened and modeled her fancy jammies. Once the kiddies were in bed, the grown-ups put out the last of their presents and set the scene for Santa to stop by.
