We have our Christmas traditions in this house. We always begin by going to dinner on Christmas Eve.
We chose to go to Rye in Mission Farms this year.
Before dinner, Michelle and I exchanged gifts, where I prompt re-gifted her the bottle of Sutter Homes Wine that we have been passing around since 2008.
I really should have made her take a drink of it. We both agree that it most likely will taste better 5 years later than it did when it was new.

I really wanted to get a family picture of the five of us, but with Kya not being too thrilled about it, I knew there was no way the cats would cooperate. So, I settled for a family picture of Ken, me, and a irritated Kya. Oh well.

Our neighbors joined us this year, which was a lot of fun.

After dinner, we made our way to On the Border for drinks. Doesn't everyone go out for margaritas after Christmas Eve dinner?

Kyle and Kaytlyn, there are so cute.
We had a lot of fun laughing and talking and telling stories. Before we knew it, was time to get home to wait for Santa.
