A very Cannary Christmas Eve...

Hello!  What had you been up to today?
We've had a very rainy and cold day here at Camp Rustown...but hearts are warm. 
We enjoyed Overnight French Toast with bacon for a late breakfast..
Did a little last minute shopping at World Market and HEB.   Got the fixin's for dirty martini's...
...and enjoyed them with hot Artichoke Heart Dip...yuuuum...
Hubby finished up all last minute gift buying and we finished wrapping the gifts - each child gets  a different wrap.  No one will know which is theirs until Christmas morning!  
...and Santa doesn't wrap. FYI...so there will be more added to this pile...
Then we set a beautiful last minute table with things we already had, 
added some white napkins and gold chargers...
We will eat by candlelight...magic!  Chicken enchiladas, salad, and wine.  It will seem like a four star restaurant and we will all be hungry after church gets out around 8 p.m.
As the day winds down, I reflect on how fast the season goes by, and how I can slow it down, just a little, and truly live in the moment.

Merry Christmas Eve!
