Christmas Eve

It's 10:00 Christmas Eve. I'm exhausted, but here I sit, eating Santa's Christmas cookies, blogging, and waiting to make sure that Kennedy is asleep before I fill the stockings and bring out the rest of the presents. I just heard her yawn.

I have been busy today.

This morning while Eric Skyped with his family, I made Peppermint Bark.

And the dough for my mom's Caramel Rolls.

This afternoon, I put together the Caramel Rolls

for Christmas Day and New Years Day just like my mom always did.

Then I made the breakfast casserole for tomorrow while Eric and the kids picked up some groceries

and our Christmas Eve dinner...pork cutlets, kimbap, and rice from Kimbap Heaven.

That's right. We had Korean takeout for Christmas Eve dinner. We figured we'd better stick with the tradition.

Usually on Christmas Eve we spend so much time driving that we don't have time to eat dinner.

Tonight, we did one better than the Jack in the Box drive thru.

After church, we headed home and Kennedy put out the cookies for Santa while Cade threw a huge fit because he was so tired.

I think (for the most part) we were able to stay so busy today that we didn't even miss all of the things we usually do on Christmas Eve. But we sure do miss the people. Merry Christmas Eve!


  1. I am so glad you were able to get the new camera lens for Christmas -- your close-up work is professional quality! I love the photos of Kennedy in front of the tree, both in light and in silhouette. Nice work, Chelsea!

  2. Your pictures are making me hungry! Time to go find a Christmas cookie...

  3. Oh wow...looks like you had fun in the kitchen!!

    Your childdren are beautiful.

    Blessings to you in the New Year!
