It's Christmas eve. As a child this was the day I so longed for. When my dad would get home from work at 5 and sit for a while....we would get the evening goodies ready. Christmas eve food consisted of chips, dips, finger foods and all the cookies and candies my mom made were now allowed to be eaten. When it was finally time to eat we would and then we would all pile into the station wagon and go look at lights. One of the older boys would made an excuse to stay home and take a nap or a shower...but low and behold when we all got home Santa would have miraculously arrived and we would open our gifts. Christmas morning meant church, so it wasn't my favorite. I liked midnight mass better- get it over with. With my son we open gifts Christmas morning. It's ok.. it's tradition...I asked to change it this year in memory of my mom, but he got offended. LOL~ OH well, it's all the same anyway. As long as we are together~ then it's perfect. I miss you mom....but will think of you!! Thanks for all your hard work to make my Christmas' the best.
