Thursday Thirteen - 138 - 13 Things We'll Be Doing This Christmas Eve

For all of you celebrating Christmas, my deepest wishes for a wonder-filled holiday.

This is what I'll be up to this Christmas Eve, my favorite day of the whole year.

1 - Hugs - loads of them. This one features my mom and Auntie Noel.

2 - Silliness - in abundance. Partaking here are my cousin Charlie, my husband Brad and me.

3 - Eating the meal I anticipate for the other 364 days of the year - my auntie's lobster bisque...mmm...

4 - More silliness - from my cousin Julianne and her husband Stephen, demonstrating romance novel clinch cover style.

5 - Laughing - demonstrating proper laugh technique is my mom, sitting with my cousin's wife Heather.

6 - Shooting lots of video footage, usually done by Stephen.

7 - Combine hosting and musical director duties, always done by Uncle Charlie.

8 - Play music - performed here by my cousin Julianne's daughter, Laura, with wee dancer Sarah, my cousin Charlie's daughter.

9 - Clap! Shown here are clappers Mom and Julianne.

10 - Play percussion, shown by enthusiastic drummer, Charlie's daughter Emily.

11 - Sing! Shown here are my sister Michelle and Mom.

12 - More silliness - it's important to keep the vibe flowing regularly throughout the evening, as demonstrated here by top silly pros Charlie, Heather, Sarah and Emily.

13 - Chill - remember to weave liberal amounts of chillin' throughout the silliness, fun and frivolity. Expert chill technique demonstrated here by Julianne's and Stephen's dog, Molly, cuddling with Stephen's aunt.

Michelle Johnson says Hope you have more silliness than you can stand.

Susan Helene Gottfried says Wow. Talk about tidings of joy, Julia.

Akelamalu says Have a wonderful Christmas Julia.
