Happy Christmas Eve! I think Christmas Eve is actually my favorite part of Christmas. My family is all coming here for dinner tomorrow. There’s food to be made, tables to be set, and a few last minute gifts to wrap. Anticipation of a wonderful day is the best part, even if there’s no chance of snow.
