Here's a little recap of Christmas Eve and Christmas day:
We started out by going to Denny's for breakfast on Christmas Eve. Paul's mom kind of started the "going out to breakfast on Christmas Eve" tradition and we liked it so decided to roll with it. We tried going to a local diner but it was closed. So Denny's it was! It was good, and they even gave Ethan a little present- this sweet Hot Wheels car!
The rest of that day we lazed about the house, watching tv, taking naps, just being bums. It was awesome. In my family, we have a buffet on Christmas Eve, with cold cuts for sandwiches, baked beans, deviled eggs, fudge, Christmas cookies, etc. Well, with just us I decided that all of that was a little over the top so we had cheeseburgers instead. Yummy! I sure missed my mom's deviled eggs, though. But I made a Rice Krispies treat wreath to make things a little more festive.
After dinner we acted out the Christmas story, another Snow family tradition. Paul read from Luke 2 and Ethan and I were Joseph and Mary. Sadie was a little too wiggly to be baby Jesus so we used a doll instead. I guess Sadie was a sheep.
We had a wonderful Christmas and hope you did too! To all our friends and family- we miss you, we love you, and thank you for an amazing year!!
