It’s Christmas Eve and our visitors have come and gone.  It was a an afternoon and evening of relaxing, catching up, and snacking ourselves into submission.  We’ll be having a huge dinner of turkey and all the trimmings tomorrow so it was decided tonight to just snack.

A large plate of cheeses (habanero is my favorite, of course) crackers, a few pounds of shrimp, cookies, veggies, and drinks all around.  We all participated in an excellent X-Box bowling tournament and a few games of darts.  Then we settled in for the movie of the night, Guardians of the Galaxy, and it was a fun and entertaining movie. The grandson was mingling with everyone and watching Mickey Mouse on his mother’s cell phone.  It really is nice being around a true Santa believer for a change.

It’s later now and they’ve all just left for home. Getting the little guy to sleep will be the real Christmas miracle tonight.  We all need to get some rest because tomorrow will be another very long day.  It’s my turn to prepare the bird and my better-half is supplying her favorite family stuffing recipe for her kids.  I should be one helluva meal. 

We’ll be exchanging gifts around midday with the dinner to follow. So I’m off to bed to read a few chapters of one of my favorite detective novel. I have a collection of those novels on my e-reader and they help me get to sleep almost every night.

For those of you who celebrate your holiday on Christmas Eve, have a Merry Christmas.  I’ll have a few additional pictures to post of our Christmas on Saturday and then it will be on to New Years.

MERRY CHRISTMAS
