I host Christmas Eve every year and it's now my fourth year making tamales for everyone! I love having traditions that I can look forward to and Christmas Eve has become a favorite! Since my husband always works Christmas Eve, it's always a balancing act of Mommy, Chef, Party Planner, and House Cleaner. This year we also had a leak in our master bathroom that was leaking down into our guest bedroom - so I was also wearing the hat of contractor and plummer "manager". We had people coming in and out of the house all day. In fact, we had a bit of a disaster with a contractor leaving the guest bedroom door open and a certain four-year-old wondering why Santa's presents were in the closet. Grrrrrrrrrr. Needless to say, it was one of the more crazy Christmas Eves I've had in a few years.
We ended the night with pictures by the tree in our matching jammies from Grandma. I am one lucky MOMMY!
