Merry Christmas Eve

The day before Christmas Eve the hubbs and Chris took their 3 boys and went shooting. Leaving Becky and I home to bake till our hearts were content. We had a Christmas Eve dinner planned and decided to do our dessert baking the day before. 
Christmas Eve morning I helped out at the PX with Becky and our Battalion Commander and his wife with the Christmas wrapping. We didn't think it would be that busy but boy were we wrong there was so many people that came in to get their last minute Christmas gifts wrapped. By 1pm when our time was up we were both warn out. Thankfully I didn't have much to do to prepare the rest of my side dishes to take over to Becky's. I was able to relax and enjoy the day a bit with the hubbs. That evening we loaded up the car and headed around the corner. Thank goodness we both live on post. No drinking and driving people. Be the passenger and enjoy it. Totally kidding!!!! 
Absolutely love this girl, we had so much fun getting everything ready for our dinner. She way out did herself on the appetizers and yummy treats to enjoy while we waited on the turkey and ham to cook. The boys B'Sed and well were boys telling army stories and drinking beer. It was such a low key laid back evening. 
So blessed for another Christmas home together. Love this man to pieces. He's all I need wrapped under my tree. 
Finally dinner was done and ready to be served!!! Now that's a spread if I do say so myself. 
Of course I had to try a little bit of everything, Holiday meals are my favorite :) 
After dinner we decided to play a little domino's or as we call it Mexican train. We used to play all the time when I lived at home and haven't played since Hawaii. It was so much fun and a great way to let our food settle before diving right into the wonderful assortment of desserts we made. 

Pecan Pie, Pumpkin Pie, Peppermint Cheese Cake and Reese Fudge Brownies. If that doesn't make your mouth melt I'm really not sure what would. 
It was a great evening, I'm so blessed we've made such great friends here in the South.
