Christmas Eve with Maya

This afternoon Maya and her parents picked up Maisie and they headed down to their Church for a Christmas service and concert.  They then came back to our home where we all enjoyed a delicious Christmas Eve dinner together. 

IMG_2740eMaisie and Maya had a blast playing together, running around and being silly.  After dinner they each opened a little gift and then ran off to play some more. 

IMG_2748e The girls would have played all night as they didn’t want the evening to end.  It was a really nice dinner and evening for all.  Our evening ended quite a bit later than we had planned, a couple hours after Maisie’s bedtime so we quickly hurried her to bed totally forgetting to leave cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer…oh well we’ll leave extra next year.  Maisie was fast asleep within minutes and hopefully she’s having sweet dreams and looking forward to Christmas morning.

Our meal was totally delicious and one of our side dishes was Creamed Corn with Cheese and Cilantro.  I made this recipe back a few weeks ago and after I licked the bowl clean all I could do was think about when I would make it again because it was off the charts wonderful.  I figured that it would be a perfect side for our Christmas Eve dinner and let me say, it was a huge hit.  Just click on the picture for the recipe.

  1. Well, that sounds like a lovely way to spend Christmas Eve. Two very cute girls, too!

    By the way, it looks like you are not getting comments anymore because you must not be approving them to be seen. ;)

  2. Okay, whoops, I take it back. My comment just went through. Heh.

  3. What a nice Christmas Eve! And that creamed corn looks wonderful. I only recently discovered that I love creamed corn with cheese. It sounded strange to me when I first heard about it - but SO good. I'll have to try your recipe.

  4. Merry Christmas!!!
