We hosted Christmas Eve at our house, and then spent Christmas Day at my in-laws'. For Christmas Eve dinner, we had lasagna: an "M" family tradition since at least the early 1990s. I briefly considered making my own lasagna, but ended up getting it from Romano's Macaroni Grill instead.

Christmas Eve was the first time I've ever used my Noritake china which I received as a gift in 1990!

Sebastian posing in front of our faux fir on Christmas Eve. The number of presents doubled after MM's parents arrived.

The tree reflected in the mirror beside it

Hard to say from this photo whether Sebastian loves his Grandma J (my MIL, pictured) or just wants her leftover lasagna

Photographic proof that MM helps out around the house

Sebastian guarding his newest toy: a stuffed Spaniel from Ikea

Too tired even to wrestle with MM

That looks like fun (Sebastian eyeing the leftovers is particularly cute lol). I love that you have your own warm, happy home, a man you love to share it with, and an excuse to use your good china! LOL Love you, Merry Christmas!
