Christmas Eve 2013

For the Last 2 years we have been in our house we have hosted Christmas Eve at our house.

Growing up we always went to my Aunt's house Christmas Eve so I feel like its just as important of a holiday as Christmas and it would feel super weird to not do anything that night

I LOVE themed parties and use Christmas Eve as my excuse to have a themed party last year we did A Very FRIED Christmas and this year the theme was Merry LITTLE Christmas

It night filled with food that was mini, small, bite size, finger food. . . If you needed a knife and a fork it was not welcome (lol)

Most of the food we made has all been featured before but we did do a few new recipes and here they are for you
