Christmas Eve day was a quiet morning that led into a sporadic afternoon. Auntie Annette invited us over for appetizers and we exchanged gifts. We were given a fantastic family movie night basket. The kids especially enjoyed the candy. Jordan, Katie's husband plays in a band The Kicks and he brought his guitar because Anna has been showing an interest in playing the guitar. She loved it, I guess I have added another item to my to do list. We posed for pictures, we chatted, and then headed off to the Children's Mass. We had to get there over an hour early just to get seats, and it filled up fast. It was a nice Mass. We indulged on McDonalds for dinner as we wanted to head as quickly as possible to the new house which we took possession of at 6:00 p.m. on Dec. 24th. We were so happy to be going home. We went to the house and made a to do list of all the cleaning that had to be done. Top of the list was getting rid of the smell, we are almost there. Then it was back to the rental to get kids to bed so Santa could come.
