We started a new Christmas tradition about 3 or 4 years ago. We go out to eat on Chirstmas eve. Usually our kids are doing other things and the restaurants (those that are open) are usually quiet and family oriented on that evening. Last year, David and Leslie joined us so now they're part of the tradition. Her parents, Dixie and Bob were here from California so they joined us this year, too. Leslie made this beautiful "joy" pillow for me. It's made of wool and is hand appliqued. For some reason the picture is on end and I don't know what to do about it!
