Have you seemed to notice that we have a love-hate relationship with Christmas? I love Christmas time of year, I love decorations, snow, presents, etc. BUT, I HATE Christmas eve. I am always so tired, all I want to do is go to bed, but there are presents to be wrapped, have to go get the ones that are hidden at my parents house, in-laws out of town but left kids gifts so have to go to their house and get them, have to play santa clause-put the presents out, stuff the stockings, have to eat all of those damn cookies that i baked so the kids will think that santa really enjoyed them, have to do all of this quietly after the kids go to bed!!!!!! I am so glad that it is over. Only 364 days until total torture again!!!!!!!!!!

We do all of our Christmas with everybody at our house on Christmas Eve... We DO NOT entertain or go anywhere on Christmas Day, it is a stay at home, be lazy and hang out together time. I will admit I felt kind of ripped off having take out chinese for dinner yesterday (I usually cook this huge multicourse meal and love doing it) so I did cook dinner for the husband and the boys...and the boy's girlfriends...and my daughter & her SO...nothing fancy or especially time consuming: a 10# prime rib, baked potatos, tossed salad, rolls and desserts leftover from yesterday. I am still in my jammies as are my husband and boys and we have been all day, its getting late enough to take a shower and putting on clean ones.
