Those of you who have followed our blog for several years may remember that we usually do a post about our traditional Christmas Eve Dinner. This past Christmas, with John + Chelsy's wedding just a week after Christmas, (and all the surrounding festivities and preparations as we had the wedding and left on tour just two weeks later) we missed posting about our dinner.
Today, though it's July, I am taking a little journey back to the beautiful sub-zero evening of our special family Christmas Eve Dinner. Enjoy!
At the last minute, everyone joined in putting finishing touches on the table as we prepared to feast and celebrate! Candles were lit, sparkling juice poured, and lights dimmed.
Our tradition is for everyone to make gourmet appetizers. We love having the appetizers be the dinner......we feel like we enjoy them more fully this way, since we can truly fill up on all the deliciousness!
