Don’t worry, underneath all those…

…. sprinkles, there ARE a few gingerbread cookies.  That’s my husband’s comment when he saw how Miss Baby had gotten carried away with the sprinkles during our cookie session a couple of nights ago!  By the time we were done, sprinkles were everywhere, and I mean everywhere.  Miss Baby had fun, and I willingly cleaned up the mess just because I love my little girl.

Only two more sleeps – and I still have a mountain of things to accomplish!  I think the Christmas dress is  going to happen!  I have been working on it today, though not without drama.  I shall save stories of the drama when I do a proper post on the dress.

Have a lovely Christmas Eve!  Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?  Growing up in Southeast Asia, our family could be found at church for Christmas Eve service.  But we kids always looked forward to Mom’s custom order chocolate cake at home waiting for us after the service.  We have decided to carry on with that tradition with Miss Baby… so, guess what we will having tomorrow night. :)

  1. Chocolate cake with sprinkles!

    Wishing the three of you a very Merry Christmas! Can’t wait to see the beautiful Christmas dress modeled! Have a wonderful magical time this Christmas!

  2. LOVE the sprinkles!!! I can’t wait to see the dress all finished and read about the fun you had making it.

    Our Christmas Eve is our celebration here. The whole gang will be here for food and gift exchanges. Christmas Day is church followed by a rather quiet day with music and dinner.

  3. Have a Merry Christmas! I hope you enjoy being with your family and the treasured memories you’ll have with Miss Baby.

    Many thanks from me for making my attempts at machine quilting make more sense. Your site has been amazing, and is so much appreciated. You go to a lot of work, and I do love getting your posts.

  4. Blessings to you and yours this Christmas. I follow via email and just want to say what a pleasure that is. Thanks for all you do. Christmas Eve tradition?
    Church then tea and goodies with my parents.

  5. I’m loving the sprinkles, I bet they’ll taste delicious.
    I wish you and your family all the very best for the season, don’t forget to take time for yourself.

  6. We always have White Elephant gift exchange with the adults on Eve. But now the “kids table” want in on the fun. They still get their gifts but they are so enticed by our fun, they want in on it. Since several “kids table” peeps are teenagers and one 23 yr old college grad….I guess they can come to the zoo and partake in the White Elephant Christmas Eve tradition.

  7. The gingerbread men look just like the sugar cookies my two grandsons decorated with their mommy’s help. And they are delicious. Like you, she is making new traditions with her children.

    Our Christmas traditions have changed over the years as our children grew up, moved away and had children of their own. So now we do Christmas Eve day with a prime rib dinner (done by me, I am very proud to say), German chocolate cheesecake, pecan pie and lots of candy from the Nifty Nut House in Wichita. Then we open presents while I wear the reindeer antlers. then church with everyone (no reindeer antlers), then the big and little kids all go home to bed until Christmas Day. Then when the big kids get hungry, they manage to make their way back to our house for prime rib dinner leftovers late on Christmas Day.

    A blessed Christmas to you and yours!

  8. I think that’s the best part of Christmas, new traditions. For us we adjust our traditions to what is going on around us. Like including friends who can’t make home to be with their familes. To include friends who don’t celebrate Christmas, so they can enjoy the happiness that we have. My mother would always make a huge meal on Christmas Day. And we would never seem to stop eating all day long.

  9. We go to the Christmas Vigil Mass,where our daughter is singing with the choir, then to the same restaurant, every year, for dinner and then out and about to see Christmas light displays.
    This year our DIL, her Mom and our grandson are going to church with us for the first time. They’re a different denomination, so this is very special.
