Daily Diary: Our Christmas Eve Celebration (VIDEO)


Hi friends!! Merry Christmas!!

My house is a complete disaster. I always host for my family on Christmas Eve and no one ever offers to help clean. It’s a running joke between me and my husband. They all scurry out and leave the house a complete disaster – pots and pans piled high to the ceiling without a care in the world.

It takes about three days for us to recuperate and that’s exactly where we are right now. Knee deep in wrapping paper and dirty dishes. LOL! That’s ok. The kids are smiling and our bellies are full. That’s all you can ask for this time of the year.

I made a little video of last night’s celebration. I bought a new little video camera and need to play with the settings because it’s filming vertical and not filling out the entire screen. Sorry about that. Be sure to enlarge the YouTube box to get the full effect.

Have a great day my friends!!
