There is such a sparkle in the air on Christmas Eve! I must say I enjoyed myself today. This morning I was able to pick up some last minute gifts with my sister and my Mom - I always have so much fun with them, they are my favorites. We braved the busy stores and endured a few holiday tunes by The Carpenters, but it was great and we survived! Once I got home, I wrapped some giftys and started to make some little smokies for the annual Jolley Christmas Dinner tonight. We ate a D. Licious dinner (with some traditional red punch...aka Fruit Punch Kool-Aid. It's my favorite!!) and hung out with the fam. I look forward to that dinner every year - it's so comfortable and laid back. The food is always so good and I absolutely love Cody's family. We left with full bellies and a full car of pressies.
As the evening winds down, we still have lots to do! Cody and I are watching 'A Christmas Story' and we're still wrapping presents and getting things ready for tomorrow. This is the first year that I have NO idea what is waiting under the tree for me - and I love it! Being surprised is the best part of Christmas. Although this season has been crazy, I am a bit sad that it will all be over tomorrow. I think I will mostly miss the feeling of the season - it's unlike anything else. I feel very blessed to have such an amazing man in my life who is my best friend in every way. Two little boys who are beautiful and I just adore them. A warm home, wonderful families that we live close to and incredible people we have as friends.
I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow! Much love to you and yours,
