Christmas Traditions

>> Thursday, December 24, 2009

This year marks our first Eads' Family Christmas. I say this because although we have had Christmas together in the past this is the first year we get to make it out own. This year is bittersweet as tonight we will sit down to a dinner for three instead of our dinners for plenty. I felt a little tug on my heart this morning as I realized how much I would miss everyone tonight and in the morning.

But you know what? We are going to Rock it Out! Eadsstyle. Here is the plan:

I am working this morning (BOOOO!) but then I am going to go home and start cooking.

Menu:
Ham
Corn Casserole
Green Bean Casserole
Double Stuffed Potatoes
Pumpkin Pie

2:00pm: Make Christmas Cookies for Santa!
3:00pm: Eat Yum Yum
5:00pm: Go by the Bauers to spread some holiday Cheer!
7:30pm: Candlelight Church Service (please don't go into flames as we enter!)
8:30pm: Open a Christmas Present, Read the Christmas Story, and the Night before Christmas
9:00pm: Lily says Goodbye to Lyle and gets tucked into Bed
9:01pm Santa's Elves get to work!
