It's Christmas Eve and we are cooking up a storm of special traditional treats for tonight's dinner. The girls have all wandered in periodically to see what we're doing and helping out. They soooo enjoy these times when they can help out in the kitchen. I think it makes them feel special, feel big! Jenna is one who doesn't particularly like getting her hands dirty. She wandered in about the time I was going to bread some chicken wings for our spicy wings. Although she clearly wanted to help, she had to go wash her hands off 2 or 3 times during the process!! Just couldn't stand to have that stuff stickin' all over her hands!
Tonight, we had some special foods, candlelight, Christmas punch, and a Christmas movie. We also traditionally let the kids open one smaller gift on Christmas Eve. They've been so excited all day anticipating tonight's festivities. They weren't disappointed and we all had a great evening. Now, we're just looking forward to Christmas morning! And opening the rest of the gifts!
