Merry Christmas!

 On Christmas Eve, we packed up the van and headed up to Mom's. We took everyone out to eat at Carrabba's. We have never gone out on Christmas Eve before, but it was kinda nice. When we got back, Seth got ready for bed and I read The Night Before Christmas to everyone. We left Santa milk, cookies, shrimp & beer. (We grew up leaving Santa shrimp and beer and I want to carry on that tradition. This is literally the only time of your I ever buy beer!) This year, since it was already late, we left frozen shrimp. I assures Seth that Santa didn't mind because e was used to having it frozen at the North Pole.  Seth and Mom hit the sack and Mom said that he heard Santa's bells and didn't move a muscle after! Mark, Aunt Sandy and I stayed up a while wrapping gifts. Miles observed. The next morning Seth woke up around 7 and was super excited to open presents. Some of the gifts he got were a bike with a crazy helmet, legos, books, movies, shoes and a mini planetarium. He and Mark were both thrilled over a bowl of individually wrapped lego Star Wars minifigures.

That afternoon Dan, Erika, Chase & Molly came over. Dana, Domingo and Sophia were in Ohio. :( We opened gifts and surprised Mom with everything she needed to finish the remodel on her bathroom. Afterwards, Don, Linda & Granny joined us for dinner. We made a prime rib- another first - and it turned out great. We had to head home earlier than I would have liked, but poor Mark had to be at work at 6 the next morning to do the final inventory for the year. All in all, it was another great Christmas.
