Christmas Eve Day



Christmas Eve day found us busily finishing last-minute cooking and crafting. We each have our own Christmas Eve specialty-- Nelson makes lobster casserole for Christmas Eve, I make cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning, Helen makes a Buche de Noel for Christmas day, and Liz makes cookies.

We made some Christmas mice, sleeping in walnuts, just like my Grandmother used to make. Keeping busy is a good way to make the time go fast. It was hard to wait for the evening's festivities.

Here is one my Grandmother made and one we made hanging on the tree.

Finally, we also finished up our Christmas bags. I had bought fabric last year during the sales and we had made gift tags on Twelfth Night when we said Farewell to Christmas.

Late in the afternoon, we took treats to the neighbors and wished them a lovely Christmas. As we sat with our neighbors and gazed at their tree, we reflected on how fortunate we are to live in this wonderful place.
It was a perfect break from all the work and we turned our hearts and minds to the evening ahead.

Oh yes, I remember reading about the lobster casserole last year! Your blog is such a comfort...new ideas and things to think about, and yet the safeness of some of your traditions we get to remember occasionally. Enjoy your time and your family. ♥
