Christmas Eve - December 24, 2019

Christmas Eve is actually my favorite day of the year. All the anticipation reaches a crescendo and all the planning and work comes to an end - either it's finished or it isn't! 

It's tradition to go over to my in-laws' with the rest of the family and have a grand gathering with food and presents. Each year we've tried to make it easier and easier since the burden falls on the women to provide food. (Anger doesn't help and I want to eat) This year it was decided to have soups and breads. For some reason,  my chicken tortilla soup just didn't taste right, but with enough cheese and sour cream,  I ate enough to be satisfied.

My MIL is a great decorator,  but I think she's starting to slow down a bit. This year, we put up my little pink tree and left it undecorated.  I love lights and bling, but it hasn't been something I've had energy for in a few years. I need someone to help me, but my almost-13yo just isn't that person.  Maybe Brian will take it on eventually.  (Crosses fingers)

I did get the boy to smile almost naturally here. I love him so much! 

Now to bed!
