Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve here in Germany. There's more snow falling outside- it's beautiful. I can't help but wish I were:

Or just generally:

Today seems unsettled, thus far (in all fairness it's on 9 AM) and I hope to make peace with the day soon enough. But I can honestly say today is the first day I've been seriously homesick since arriving here in Germany. You see Christmas Eve was always the bigger deal in our house. Amazing meals were had on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day but there was always much more since of family on the Eve. So today I'm definitely missing the since of family (again, in all fairness Kevin's had CQ all night) and wanting an amazing meal (I've been craving Spaghetti and Lasagna like a crazy person over the last week). Such is life, right? I'm sure the hubs and I will make the best of our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

A fellow blogger, ABW raved about how much her and her family enjoyed their Thanksgiving at the DFAC so I'm hoping to try that out for tomorrow.

I hope you all have the Merriest of Christmas Eve's wherever you may be and whoever you may be spending them with!

Unfortunately I know exactly how you feel, we were in the same boat when we first got to Germany. :( The DFAC over here doesn't do much for Christmas. We had Thanksgiving dinner there when we first arrived and thought they would do the same for Christmas but nope. It was so disappointing. Hope thats not the same for you guys and you have a Merry Christmas. :)
