My favorite day of the year.


My view on Christmas Eve, was just as such here, and lemme tell you, I call that perfect. 

Everyone knows my love for Christmas, but Christmas Eve, is definitely my favorite day of the year, and I think it's summed up best in one word... 

Anticipation. 



I just love everything about this day and night...

The lights


The fireplaces


The decorations


And my moms pretty table.


The goodies to eat


And recipes to share



And of course, sitting around the table to share all those goodies.


The fun I have dressing up my babies


And the way this one delights doing it for me


Honestly, she was born to do this stuff.



And I even love the way I have to FORCE the other baby with bodily harm to cooperate for me


And how he refuses to dress up for me.


Every part


I love it all.


I love hanging out with the family


And how the "big babies"


Even still seem to get a semi-teenagerish-kick out of it.


But most of all, I love the excitement that the anticipation of this night brings out in these two


And all that anticipation is always worth it in the end, because Christmas was about to come!
