christmas eve.

the first thing I did this morning was plug in the twinkly lights on our tree and crank up the christmas carols. after I made a pot of coffee, of course.

merry christmas eve!

my family is passing through des moines today on their way out to colorado. so [J] + I are happily hosting a christmas eve feast at our sweet little possibly too small for 7¬†apartment. we’ll be carrying on my family’s tradition and making a big pan of lasagna. nothing like carb-overload to put you in a deep sleep, so santa can sneak down the chimney. at least that’s what I presume. [J]’s family also has a scrumptious christmas eve tradition, of seafood chowder. my mouth is watering just thinking about it. we’ll be missing it this year. ahhh, why can’t we be in two places at once?

does your family have a traditional feast?

I need to get back to transforming the apartment into a cozy, christmas wonderland. but I wanted to share a couple scenes from around here ..

my christmas eve to yours.

even a dinner of seven needs place cards. and they need glitter.

I purchased gold ornaments from the dollar store & hot-glued pieces of wine cork to the bottom, to serve as a stand.
