A Very Merry Christmas Eve 2009

xmaspaigeThe wrapping is nearly done. Seventeen gift bags and baskets of cookies and other confections have been made and delivered. The tree is lit, the outdoors decorated. Butter is softening for a few more batches of cookies. The stockings are hung and the milk is chilling for that big guy in the red suit. All of this can mean only one thing: It’s Christmas Eve.

This evening, we will don our finery and head to a beautiful Christmas Eve service. Then we will pick up Chinese food and head home. We’ll change into our PJs, watch a Christmas movie and eat. It’s going to be grand.

The kids are excited beyond belief. This is the first year that they’ve both shared in the excitement. It’s a wonderful, wonderful thing. I cannot wait to see their faces tomorrow morning …

From all of us here in the Sarah’s Cucina Bella household to all of you, have a very Merry Christmas, a Happy Holidays and a joyous weekend.
