Chris and I are fortunate to spend holidays with both our families because we live close to both. We had a traditional Mieuli Christmas Eve cioppino dinner followed by Christmas morning present opening and homemade buttermilk biscuits. Then we had Christmas dinner with my family which included a hilarious White Elephant game. Mostly we got some really good quality time in with our families, ate a lot of delicious food and had a really lovely holiday (even though we missed the people who couldn't spend it with us). Our nieces and nephews are arriving later today from Southern California so we'll be having a third Christmas celebration with the little ones. Oh, and Chris' mom handmade a stocking for me which is so special I want to frame it. It will go up on the family mantle from now on!
