December 24 - Christmas Eve
We were up early and Robbie made Breakfast Burritos, then we watched The Year Without a Santa Claus. We were both yawning after the movie and decided to take a little nap, which was very refreshing! I made grilled cheese sandwiches and soup for lunch, then we spent the afternoon on preparations for Christmas dinner. Robbie made deviled eggs, seasoned the turkey breast, and prepared the glaze and garnishments for the ham. I prepared the praline sweet potatoes, cornbread dressing, and green bean casserole, and set the table (using my cute ornament name place holders that I purchased in London a couple of years ago!). We drove through the neighborhood to see Christmas lights on our way to the Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion service at church. We watched the 1970s version of Miracle on 34th Street before turning in for the night.
After all that beautiful weather earlier in the week, the weather turned cold and rainy, but at least I was finally able to wear my new coat!
