Steve's cooking. Shelley's cooking. Cleaning and getting out the holiday dishes is well advanced. The 47th Christmas Eve party at my mother's house will start momentarily. We're adding a new dessert to the menu, as well as two new side vegetable dishes and my husband is daring to alter my grandmother's scalloped corn. Presents are wrapped, decorations are in place, and the feast will begin.
Merry Christmas from Chris Choate-Raible. The weather is chilly but clear tonight in Phoenix, and I just returned from dinner with my kids. I'm starting a fire in the fireplace and we are going to watch "It's a Wonderful Life"..my favorite. Wish I could be with family and friends in Miles City tonight. There's no place like home.
