A Christmas Eve Tradition

Is is just me, or did Christmas come and go in about 3.4 seconds? Thanksgiving until now has seriously flown by in an instant.  About 2 months ago, Jordan's momma made our annual reservation at Maggiano's in Northpark for Christmas Eve dinner.  We went to Northpark a couple hours early to window shop and admire all of the beautiful gifts available for purchase. Normally, Jordan's Dad makes his purchase for the Mrs., but this year I'm pretty sure Jordan snuck away for one last gift (but I'm not complaining!)
Last year was special- but this year was EXtra special.. Patrick and Kat got to tag along with the Massey clan for some delicious grub at (probably) my favorite restaurant.

I Believe..do you ;)
I think Big Massey gives Little Massey a run for his money.  It is clear where the looks come from.
Christmas Kisses from my Sweet!
Waiting patiently for our table before dins.  This woman makes my heart smile.
Roy and Bree
Kat and myself in between making the difficult decision on what to order
Take three of this one.. they were cracking me up.
 Sister-in-Law and myself
Patrick and his sweetie
It was confirmed that Patrick is 6'4".  John-Evan (24 yo brother) is 6'5", and Sam (13 yo brother) is close to passing me by at 5'3".  I am just fine at my 5'5".
After dinner we went back to Bree and Roy's to watch Christmas movies in our PJs and fall asleep, excited for Christmas morning to come!  Patrick and Kat stayed the night as well, so they would be able to celebrate this holiday with us, too.
Libby (Jordan's parents' dog..and one of Britt's pups! Hard to believe that!) and Patrick made quite the bond.

I find it out of character to have absolutely no pictures from Christmas morning- and I'm really sad for that.  Boo..We had a beautiful Christmas with so much to be thankful for.  After a somewhat lazy morning, Bree and Roy headed to see Mr. M and MeMe while JBree met her in-laws for Christmas dinner, and Jordan and I headed to Austin to spend a day with my family (again..no pictures.) 

I hope you all had a blessed holiday- remembering what this celebration is truly about- Jesus Christ, The Son, that died for us have our sins washed clean.
