Events of the Eve 2009

Christmas Eve was very eventful for us this year! Typically it's just us at home getting ready for Santa's arrival in the morning. But this year was extra special as Grandma and Papa arrived on Wednesday to spend Christmas with us and Cousin Paige's brother Patrick was also in town visiting from Georgia.

We went to mass at 4:45 in the afternoon (with a Bakers Square pit stop first after our attempt at attending the VERY FULL 3pm mass was unsuccessful!) followed by a fun night of food, drink, presents and playing games- the girls with their new toys and the adults with Guitar Hero & Scene it! But eventually it was time to get those sugar plums dancing in the girls' heads so Santa could make his visit to us. One last thing of course- putting out the cookies, chocolate milk and letter for Santa strategically in front of the tree where he was to put the loot :)!

After a bit more merriment for the adults it was time to wrap up the Events of the Eve to recharge a bit to enjoy the Joy & Wonder of Christmas Day! So as the poem says it best it was...Happy Christmas to all and to all a Good Night!
