Christmas Eve 2010

This year we spent Christmas Eve at Amy's house with her family and my Dad and Faye. In the past, our family tradition was to spend Christmas Eve at my Mother and Father's home. Since things have changed, Amy and I decided to take turns having it at our homes. Amy and I fixed dinner that included ham, potatoes, rolls, creamed corn, eggnog pie, cookies and punch.  Amy had made a cake and we sang "Happy Birthday" to Jesus. The kids opened presents and then we played the "Candy Bar" game and did puzzles. When Mike, the girls and I arrived home, the girls were tired and went to bed. It was definitely a different Christmas Eve then in the past when we spent it with my Mother and my Grandparents, but Amy and I will try to have Christmas Eve together for as long as we can! It was good to be with family and remember the true meaning of Christmas!
