Christmas Eve 2007

Christmas Eve was great this year. We had Italian food which turned out great except for my gnocchi, which I really don't want to talk about.
Actually my tiramisu didn't turn out great either. But it was the though that counted :)

After dinner we sang a carol and Stewart read the story in Luke.

Eli did a puppet show about the birth of Jesus. Brooklyn sang "Stars were Gleaming." And Eli sang "Jingle Bells"(while he jumped up and down the while time.)

Eli listened so quietly while Stewart read about the birth of Jesus. It was very sweet.

Next was the best part! The kids got to open their gifts!

Eli was so happy with all of his gifts.

now I feel bad for suggesting gnocci. Sorry it didn't turn out so well. I have to say every time I've made it, it has also been a little frustrating. It's just not as simple as it sounds, I guess. Especially the rolling and cutting part.

Becca, you always make yummy food for us so don't feel bad that one of your experiments didn't turn out. And your pudding was GOOD! Everyone ate it. Becca is a really good cook and is always trying new receipes, she shows no fear! She did not get this from me as I am a meat and potatoes cook. I only make about 9 things. Becca can make 90 things.
