Good for you for doing everything the day before. How great. Enjoy your time together! What a fun Christmas with everyone there.

Just a tip: Make your potatoes in advance and put them in the crock pot to keep warm - then you aren't scrambling at the last minute to do them in order to serve them warm.

Merry Christmas!
