December Madness- Christmas Eve

On Christmas eve, we went to church for our candlelight service before we had our dinner at home. We went home with some of our close friends after the service for a somewhat special dinner. We didn't actually plan on having more people in our house that night but we changed our minds and thought that the more people we would have the merrier Christmas dinner would be. So we had my best friend of one year, Tricia, and her family come over. My adopted mother here, Tricia's mom actually, also came who made the whole time so fun with her "diva-ness", breath of fresh air energy and spiritual beauty. Oh, we love her! The dinner was so complete with conversations that were so full of sense and joy!

Izzy and I at the entry way of our church on Christmas eve service. Man, I looked pretty much like my mom in this photo! :)


Dina time... I mean to say dinner time! Paul, Chuka, Brian (Jeff's brother), Diva Momma Katie, Empty chair was my space :), Angel, Tricia and Jeff.

The kidos' table (Ben, Izzy and Andrew)

Tricia's mom helped me set the table.

My plate... Freshly baked bread stick, baked potato, ham, buttered corn and Pistachio salad. I'm glad I made the ham just right. I was worried that it would dry out after baking it longer than needed. Good I bought our favorite Hillshire original ham... it cooked well, juicy, tender and not salty. They all loved my ham!!!
