Christmas Eve is one of my favorite days and nights all year!
The anticipation...the magic...the holy night and of course, with my family, all of that FISH!
We spent the day relaxing, watching Hallmark Christmas movies and preparing the calamari dish for Aunty Peggy's that night
Rob's Dad made one of his french pork pies and we enjoyed that with some shrimp and other snacks
He makes the BEST crust
We went to the 3:30 mass....here are the girls beforehand in their Christmas Best!
After mass, we came back to get packed up and Rob surprised me with this Matt Saracen tee- my favorite character on Friday Night Lights!
Aunty Peggy's House was awesome as usual- great time to catch up with my Dad's family
and enjoy our Italian Catholic "Feast of the Seven Fishes"
Our fishes this year were Crab, Swordfish, Scallops, Lobster, Calamari, Mussels and Shrimp
The family was blessed to have Baby Jocelyn join us for her first Christmas too! As you can see above, Eva just LOVED the "babbey"
At home, we tucked the kiddos in and Santa went to work...what a magical night!
