Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was low key around here thankfully and it’s always when we do our extra nice meal! 

First the four of us went for a walk around the hood which was good to do. Dad, Molly Anne, Mills and I. 

Mills was a very happy boy! Basking in the sun, on a walk and getting loved on!

Bloody Mary time! Zing zang and Tito’s! 

Then the standing rib roast. We decided this year that cooking it at 350 degrees at a set amount per pound was the easiest way to go. That’s what we did and it was perfect. Oh and first let it sit out for 2-3 hours to get to room temperature. Anyway, cook for 21 min per pound! Then take out and let sit for 20-30 min. We didn’t cover it while it cooked. We always get this hunk of meat from The Butchers Market! This was 3 ribs and 6.7 pounds and we decided it was the perfect size for 6 of us (2 kids included). We had some leftovers but not much of the good stuff!

We opened wine from our Napa trip last year! 

Poppa is the chef!

We had it with asparagus from the butchers market and air fryer baked potatoes!

Toasted Uncle Mac, Mom’s brother. His birthday was on 12/24 and we wish he would have been here with us. 

The other neighbors brought the kids some adorable gifts!

And you know we drove around and looked for Rudolph’s nose. If you don’t do this with your kids, I highly recommend. It’s soooo cute. You’ll find a red flashing light in the night sky and that’s Rudolph! Grady was a little scared to get out of the car and look at the red light off in the distance. It was kinda cute I must say! 

When we got home, he wouldn’t spread the reindeer food with Molly Anne in fear the reindeer were going to come right then! We assured him that they were still in east Africa per Santa Tracker!

See him inside watching her!

Twas the night before Christmas! Grady and I read it together too!

And to all a good night! Santa does not wrap here. But we do so those are the wrapped gifts plus wrapped gifts from my parents.
