Christmas Eve

Merry CHRISTmas! Today, I am cooking and stitching. I am going to make deviled eggs, chocolate peanut butter candy, a pie and cookies. Last night DD#1 made fudge, and I made roasted pecans and some oyster crackers.

Tonight we’ll kick off the festivities by going to my aunt’s house. I’ll need to put together a couple trays of food for that and wrap one present before we go.

Dh has gone to the store(s) for a few things. Like a belt for the vacuum cleaner that’s needed one for about 5 days. I told him I refused to have Christmas on a crusty carpet, so if he wanted Christmas, he better get that thing fixed, LOL! I want to have as much as possible done for today and tomorrow before we leave tonight.

We’ll eat our main meal tomorrow night here at home. The crew has asked for fried chicken for Christmas dinner. We’ll have that, fried cabbage, mashed potatoes with gravy, homemade mac and cheese and the pie. Breakfast and lunch will be light and snack-y. I just don’t see the children sitting still for a meal until later. We’ll do the Santa thing, and then church at 11. I don’t imagine we’ll get to the tree until after that, but I could be wrong. I’m allowing for *not* getting to that til after church anyway. Then after we open gifts, the girls and I will make the supper. Nothing is complicated, so it should not be real stressful.

I just realized that for the first time on a dozen years, I forgot to pick up anything for dh’s stocking. Maybe I’ll find something. Maybe I won’t. But I am not going shopping today. My little gift to myself, I haven’t gone into a store in about a week, except ACMoore, and that was fun.
