Special Xmas Eve

This year on Christmas Eve as Daniel was heading off to bed (having worked the night before) he mentioned that he'd sort of like to have a special dinner that night. So I grabbed some groceries while he was sleeping and the kids and I prepared a surprise dinner. We had chicken, mashed potatoes, cinnamon yams, corn, wheat rolls, veggies & dip, and deviled eggs. Anyone who knows my usual cooking style of "open the box and dump it in the pan" surely understands that this was a much bigger undertaking for me. We had a lot of fun and Daniel was very happily surprised. As a final treat for the kids we had them all dress up in their fancy clothes, turned down the lights, and ate by candle light. The girls thought it was wonderful.
