Christmas Eve 2013

This was our very first Christmas staying in San Marcos so we had some new traditions! Levi had to play three Christmas Eve services at church in the evening so Christmas Eve day we had lunch with his dad and stepmom and all the kids. Lisa made a big ham and potatoes and I brought bacon wrapped green beans, coated with brown sugar and butter. HEAVENLY. After eating we did a gift exchange in which Levi and I ended up with the world's warmest/softest blanket and some apple pie bourbon. Here's a pic of the green beans I made! Super easy recipe.

After lunch we took a group picture in the front yard. That's actually our yard off to the left. Fun fact if you didn't know, we live right next door to Levi's dad and Lisa!

Then we tried to get a group picture of all of the dogs...which wasn't really a success. 

That night I rode up the the last Christmas Eve service with our friends Cattie and Caleb. After the service we were all so hungry and found one of the only places open called 24 Diner. Which is actually a fancy face diner where I got the best Chicken and Waffles! Side note: while we were waiting outside for table a homeless man came by. I was talking with him and he said, "You are really nice....may I kiss you?" Don't worry, I said no he may not. I just had to record that funny story since I forget all life events in about 30 seconds. It was really weird being out at a restaurant with friends on Christmas Eve, but I love change so it was fun to do this year :) We got back late that night and went right to bed!
