I'll be going to a midnight candle lighting and carol singing service on Christmas eve - it starts at ll:30 and ends early Christmas morning.
Then we go home and open one present - each person picks one present they most want the other to open.
Then I'll get up early and go for a walk with my dog and take some pictures - unless it's pouring with rain- if it is - I'll stay home.
Then I'll come home and make cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate.
Then I'll wake the kids up.
Then we'll open presents while eating our cinnamon rolls and drinking hot chocolate - oh yeah- and bacon, I forgot the bacon (we only have bacon in the house at Christmas and Easter).
Then I'll take a nap while the kids watch tv or something.
Then we'll eat lunch - not turkey or anything - last year we had sea bass - I might make jambalaya this year.
Then my daughter, my dog and I will start driving toward Scotland. We'll start about 3:00 so I can be past Bristol and into more scenic areas by about dusk when it's my favorite time of day to take pictures (I like the light).
We'll drive along the deserted highway (I always fly and/or drive on part of the actual holiday - no traffic) listening to music until we get tired - and then we'll stop and go to sleep.
I'll be in Scotland until about the 30th - back in time to celebrate New Years with friends and wish them and my son a happy, healthy new year- and eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day.. so we'll all have good luck in 2009.
