It’s that time of year again. We have finally made it to Christmas Eve and are just mere hours from jolly goodness overflowing our stockings and fulfilling a year’s worth of wishes. The excitement is almost too much for our 7 year-old, and falling asleep is proving yet again to be the biggest struggle imaginable. This year, like every year before it, we discussed the game plan for the morning; when can we open presents? What do we do if we wake up before present opening time? Which presents can we open? We’ll see soon enough if any of it has really sunk in. For the record, present opening time is at 6am and not a minute before then.
Tonight, for Christmas Eve dinner, we went to Vivace in Belmont, which has turned out to be our favorite Italian restaurant in the Bay Area. Here are my two favorite people at the end of the meal.
