Merry Christmas Eve!
Just taking a break from my cooking and cleaning to write a quick post. So far I’ve made baked ziti and stuffed mushrooms for tonight, and am halfway through a 5-layer gelatin dessert for tomorrow. Still have to get dressed, vacuum and do a quick tidy before my family arrives here at 5! We’re having appetizers and then heading off to mass, and coming back for baked ziti, salad, and fresh bread. I’m just glad that all I’m contributing to tomorrow’s meal is carrots – whiskey coated of course!
I’m so looking forward to some downtime with my family tomorrow, and can’t wait to celebrate Christmas morning with S (and our animals of course!). In fact, S is off at the mall buying my present as we speak. 😉 I also am looking forward to mass tonight – this year has been harder than most for me to stay in the true spirit of Christmas, but tonight will be a great way to remember what’s truly important (and wish baby Jesus a happy birthday!).
I hope that Hanukkah, Christmas, and the New Year bring everybody health, peace and joy. May all our wishes come true in 2010!
