We had a wonderful Christmas Eve. We had a great time with the W.’s, and enjoyed a delicious dinner.
Our menu included Prime Rib, zucchini boats (Mom filled them with bacon and cheese), asparagus, salad, mashed potatoes, and au jus. Everything was wonderful – especially the zucchini boats and the Prime Rib. (I think I am going to have leftover Prime Rib tonight. Regrettably, there are no leftover zucchini boats.)
It was so nice to have the W.’s over. We played games, baked and decorated cookies, prepared dinner, and visited. One of the games we played is called “Blokus.” It is one of my and Melissa’s favorites. We had to play it, as we usually play it when Melissa comes over, and Melissa said that it wouldn’t be Christmas without a game of Blokus. 🙂 We also played a great game called “In a Pickle.”
I hope you had a lovely Christmas Eve, also.
I was planning to post Christmas and Christmas Eve together, but as I had so many pictures, I am going to post them separately.
Melissa and I had fun setting the table. She decided that we needed full formal place settings.

Peppermint candles – aren’t they so cute?
Prepping dinner and chatting
We had some mini marshmallows by the candles for decoration. Melissa decided to roast them over the candles with a toothpick.
