Christmas Eve 2011

December 24, 2011

This morning Mason and I drove to the fish market in Tallahassee.  I placed an order on Tuesday and was looking forward to the Feast of the Seven Fishes.  It was Mason’s first time at Market Square Seafood and he was entranced by all of the fish sitting in the coolers and swimming in the tank.  We were helped by a girl from Monticello and soon were headed out the door with two large ice filled bags.

Charlotte came over after lunch and we spent the majority of the afternoon in the kitchen.  She made a dip Becky wanted while I worked on calamari salad.  We also made a cranberry/orange relish for tomorrow’s dinner and before long it was time for church.

Becky dressed the kids super cute and earlier in the month bought Mason his first bow tie from Southern Proper.  It is navy blue with Golden Retrievers on it.  He stood perfectly still while I tied it.  He looked very handsome and was happy we were wearing ties that looked alike.

We made our way to Indian Spings and everyone was happy to see us.  The kids walked around saying hello and Miss Julia showed some of her moves off during the hymns.  At the end of the service we lit candles and sang Joy to the World, Mason got to hold his own candle and looked very angelic as we sang about the birth of Christ.

As soon as we got home I threw on some jeans and got to work in the kitchen.  On the menu was calamari salad; boiled shrimp; sauteed mussels in white wine; linguine in clam sauce; seared scallops; crab dip; and steamed lobsters.  Dessert was cassateddis (riccota stuffed turnovers).  We ate, watched It’s A Wonderful Life, ate some more and then ate some more.  It was a great way to spend the Christmas Eve!
