Christmas Eve Gift!!!!!!!

Christmas Eve Gift!
My family has said that to each other ever since I can remember. Basically we call each other and answer the phone saying, "Christmas Eve Gift". On Christmas day, we just say, "Christmas Gift." Apparently at one point a LONG LONG LONG time ago, people said and the one that didn't say it first (aka lost) had to give the other person a gift. We have never done the whole gift thing...we just say it. MawMaw and DaddyDee always beat me. When our family calls each other, we literally answer the phone with "Christmas Eve Gift." I have got Chad to say it to. But he never wins! Maybe one day he will!
One this great Christmas Eve, I didn't have to work! YEA!!!!! We have our Christmas eve service tonight at IABC. And then after that we will head to Robert Lee.
Since Chad and already did our Christmas, we went to the mall and a shoe store and exchange a couple of things that didn't fit the two of us. Then we came home. It is a VERY nice day outside today. So we took our little dog to the pond right north of the mall and some old bread and fed the ducks. The ducks liked me more than they liked Chad. But when Pearl got down to run and play...all the ducks flew away.
Tonight we are headed to Robert Lee!

Christmas Eve Gift!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Christmas Eve Eve Eve at the Melton's

Chad and I the past 2 years have gone to eat dinner somewhere nice and then come home and open presents. We did that exact same thing this year. I honestly didn't know if we would get to because I had been working until about 6:30 to 7pm at night. But this week I got off early. By early I mean, anywhere from 5pm to 5:30.
Monday night we went to eat at 50 Yard Line here in Lubbock.

Then we came home and put on our pj's and opened presents. It was a fun night. I made Chad stop after every time he opened something to take a picture. He loved it! Haha!

Pearl actually was calm for little bit during the evening! It was nice!

We had a great evening! It was fun to hang out just the two of us. I've been working alot lately so it was a fun evening!
Merry Christmas Eve Eve Eve!
