Our Christmas Eve began with the kids and I sleeping in while Damian worked. Poor Daddy! He came home around 11 and we started to prepare lunch for our friends who are family, the Basilicatos. After a mexican fiesta we shared gifts, played Headbanz the game, and enjoyed each other's company
We then headed to Damian's sister, Veronica and her family's home. We were the first to arrive and enjoyed visiting with everyone and feasting on delicious appetizers and spiked egg nog. The kids wasted no time playing with their cousins Abbe and Charlie.
After eating our dinner, we listened to Abbe play Jingle Bells on her guitar. Emma also sang her songs from her play. Then, it was on to our traditional Kris Kringle gift exchange.
We had a wonderful Christmas Eve and enjoyed the laughter and good times.
