It’s Christmas Eve. Today we are staying home, wrapping a few more Christmas presents, and enjoying family. Tonight we will go to our Christmas Eve church service as a family and then we’ll head to the Outback Restaurant for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner out. We started that tradition many years ago and it’s the only time Mark and I treat all of our kids (married and still at home) and their spouses, to dinner out.
Our oldest daughter and her hubby alternate holidays with the families and this year isn’t our year to have Christmas with them. Instead, they’ll come and stay a few days next week. (But they’ll be at our house next Christmas and we’ll get to be a part of baby’s first Christmas!)
What about you? What does your family do on Christmas Eve?
I’m giving extra time for you to participate because it’s likely that many of us will not be on email or internet over the next few days. You can leave a comment until midnight Sunday, Dec 27, to enter this giveaway (make sure you include your EMAIL in your comment!). You can Facebook, Twitter, or blog about it to get additional entries into the drawing! Subscribing to my blog or getting a friend to subscribe to my blog will also add additional entries! Just email me at jillsavagegiveaway (at) yahoo (dot) com to let me know about the extra entries.
For the Day 24 Drawing, I’ll be giving away my Hearts at Home book Professionalizing Motherhood. This book helps moms to see what they do everyday as a profession. Once I thought of it that way, I became a much more intentional mom!
While you are visiting family this week, will you introduce your sister, sister-in-law, or another friend or family member you’ll see to our online conversations? The more moms in our online community here, the better our conversations are!
I look forward to hearing about your Christmas Eve celebration!
