My parents always come to our house on Christmas Eve so they will be here for Christmas morning. I do a lot of cooking all the time and when we have company it adds a bit to the cooking, and I love it but it is nice to go out and NOT have to do dishes some times. The Past 4 years we have went to PF Chang's for Christmas Eve dinner this year we did Hibachi since we don't have a PF Chang's in town.
About 4:30 he informed us that while at Grammy's the weekend before that he FOUND a race car track.... this was the ONLY thing he asked for and it was to be from SANTA. We had it shipped to Grammy's so he would not be home when it showed up. Well we went into panic mode, so John and I made a mad dash to Walmart to find another Santa worthy gift, since nothing else we got him was very exciting :) and Home we came with a Large remote control car. He had mentioned a few times he would like a remote car. And we were VERY glad we had planned on a smaller Christmas so we were able to grab a new gift. NO fear he did get the track it was just from Mommy and Daddy instead of Santa and he had to wait to find it after everything else was done for the day with a treasure hunt.
