Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve. I always thoroughly enjoy it when it comes around. Just the thought that Christmas is only one day away makes me feel all warm and fluttery inside! What's not to like about it, anyway?  My family and I always have my MeeMaw over for supper and later in the evening exchange gifts.

To say that I get excited before opening a gift would be a vast understatement. Let me tell you, I am still the epitome of a little kid when it comes to opening gifts. Just hearing the sharp tearing of the paper and knowing I am only seconds away from seeing what the gift is creates butterflies in my stomach.

Forgive me for writing a run-on sentence. Ahem.

My family, my MeeMaw and I had a wonderful time this evening. We had {a huge and positively heavenly} supper, exchanged gifts and chit-chatted for quite a while. Good times.

MeeMaw prepared a simply wonderful, home-made red velvet cake complete with home-made cream cheese icing. Words cannot describe how wonderful it was!

And just because I felt the need, I photographed  what the day looked like:

Gloomy yet beautiful.

Who doesn't try on toe socks with their new pair of Toms? I'm so macho.

Merry Christmas, dear friends!
