Merry Christmas Eve

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

It is a chilly 23 this morning in southern NH. Snow from yesterday is gone. Sun is out and we have dropped in temperature as I write this to a chilly 21 and that doesn't include the windchill factor if there is any. I am inside nice and warm enjoying plain eggnog with a dash of cinnamon this morning. I had a salad for breakfast and a pickle. It is so good for you. I am eyeing the crate of Clementine tangerines in the kitchen. I had one last night oh it was truly a treat! I am giving one to each of my grandsons for Christmas. They will be in a stocking along with a beaded Christmas ornament. They also are getting handmade adorable felt gingerbread men ornaments which are wrapped up.They already saw them and went crazy for them. I can't wait to see them hang them on their tree and put there own decorations up.  Great pictures hopefully!

Our turkey is still defrosting nicely. Tomorrow afternoon I will be roasting a 14 lb turkey, making stuffing, mashed potatos, gravy, green beans, yummmmmmy asparagus, whole cranberry sauce, crescent rolls all buttered up plus a dessert chocolate pudding pie in a chocolate pie crust with no whipped cream I opted for healthy. We also have chocolate mint icecream. I like the peppermint icecream that is available around the holidays but I couldn't find any while grocery shopping yesterday. We do have those delicious tangerines too. What special Christmas meal will you be making? Perhaps you have a tradition or recipe you would like to share. What do you do on Christmas Eve?
