Christmas in Spahnville:
Christmas Eve day was spent preparing for the big day. I made homemade clam chowder and prepped veggies for our supreme nacho dinner. (Charlie's idea which we whole-heartedly consented to) Charlie ran around the house pretending to be in the NFL (his current obsession) before we settled things down with a little craft. I think it turned out pretty cute, don't you?
Later, we took our "annual" Christmas Eve photo booth pictures. Again, cute.... right?
And even though we were exhausted, we managed some Christmas reading. (My favorite, of course)
That night, we totally forgot to leave milk and cookies out for Santa, not to mention the reindeer food we had made that was supposed to be sprinkled out on the lawn. (Whoops) I guess Santa didn't really care because he still left the loot.
Then it was on to opening presents. (We used the word 'presents' very loosely... as evidenced by the wrapped up cereal.)
When all the gifts had been unwrapped, and our living room was officially declared a disaster zone, we refilled the coffee cups and settled in to relax and enjoy the day. Very merry, indeed.
