Christmas Eve.

Groovy Girl used this app to humor herself.  You might ask why Teenage Boy has on a crazy Christmas sweater...?  We were at a second-hand store and he tried it on for fun.  Lucky me, he "allowed" this photo to be snapped.

On a quieter note; I've had the house to myself for the last couple of hours. Pure bliss.

The two teenagers are still sound asleep.  My husband is upstairs working on something-I don't know what but probably don't need to disturb him.  I used my time to finish a last grocery list for meals after tomorrow and then decided to not worry about that list until Wednesday.  I whipped up a batch of sweet puffed corn-again with the unhealthy treats, I know! I made about six bags of this addicting treat and am going to disperse to my neighbors.  I'd never had this snack before this year and now that I've made it will be happy to give it all away so I don't have to nibble it's buttery richness as we hang out together tomorrow.  If you need a drink to serve for guests this peppermint treat by Brown-eyed Baker caught my eye this morning.

The plans for the rest of my day: (updated)

-yoga for renewal and balance.
-Read more Abarat by Clive Barker.
-Finish knitting mini-scarf for teenage daughter's plant.
-Take my teenagers on a local adventure
  a. coffee shop (closed)
  b. two new vintage shops

-Take a long bubble bath to prepare for tonight's two services.
-Heat Italian tortellini soup in crock pot to have between services.
-Make bread to share with soup.
-wrap gifts
-talk to Groovy Girl at the end of the day to find out her day's adventures in Florida.

I plan to have a very relaxing tomorrow, enjoying my family.  
Peace be with you as you celebrate however you choose to celebrate this wonderful holiday.
