Tonight I am treating myself to a pomegranate martini! It has been a long time since I had a martini and I must say I am really enjoying it! Especially because it was made for me with love from my hubby. After last minute cuddles with the kids before bed it was waiting for me downstairs.
I added 2 snowmen ice cubes to my drink, and the ice cubes along with the beautiful deep red color made the drink look very festive. The ice cubes melted too quickly to snap a picture.
This morning I organized all my Christmas receipts. It is amazing how fast they add up. Also I did some food shopping for Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day dinners, so that tomorrow I will hopefully have more down time. My food shopping included a seafood store, Save-On Foods, and Costco.
Tomorrow for Christmas Eve we are making a scaled back Cioppino, mainly just less seafood to keep the cost down. There were lots of people out tonight.
Earlier we created a cute handmade ornament. The kit was given to us last year by great friends for the birth of our daughter. Thank you so much! Before we knew it 2 months had gone by and we still had not made it. It was then we decided to save it to make a handprint ornament for our daughter’s first Christmas this year.
Just 2 short hours until Christmas Eve. For me it is probably my favorite night of the year with all the magic in the air.
Here’s wishing all your dreams come true!
What does Christmas Eve look like in your house, any special traditions?
