We had a big Christmas Eve dinner by ourselves. Honey-baked ham, divine potatoes, whole wheat rolls, salad, broccoli, and Welch's sparkling grape juice. Everything turned out great. And the best part is that we will have leftovers for a few days so I too can take a break from cooking.
After dinner we made hot cocoa with marshmallows and whip cream and watched The Polar Express before putting the girls to bed. Hot chocolate really makes me sleepy. It works great on the girls too. Straight to bed with no complaining, and they fall asleep quickly.
