Christmas Eve

Presents are under the tree. Ham is in the oven. We are through with work for the week. Tonight, things will be quiet. Just the family here at the house. Hannah might talk us into letting her open a present. Simple supper of ham, sweet potatoes, green beans, fruit salad, mac & cheese, and rolls.

Tomorrow I'll be up fairly early. Making chicken and dumplings. Baking the dressing. Sipping my coffee. When everyone is stirring we'll open up our gifts. Then some time to relax. Maybe catch a movie on the all day John Wayne on the Western Channel.

Tomorrow evening, we'll join my nieces over at my sisters house for chicken gumbo, a good visit and check out whats in our stockings on her fireplace.

However you are celebrating, I hope yours is wonderful and that all is well with you and yours.

Love, Barbara
