Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is probably one of my favorite parts about Christmas. Ever since I was little we would have a fun Christmas Eve, with lots of food and good times. We always drew names and got to open one gift the night before Christmas. Now we do it with the cousins, we all met at my mom's house, ate lots of goodies, dressed the kids up for the Nativity, and exchanged gifts. It is so much fun. Of course I think we will all agree that it is getting more and more hectic with all the little ones running around. But I don't think they care, in fact I know they are creating memories that will last a lifetime. Here are some of my favorite pics:

The Nativity

(Nice candy drool David, I am sure Becca will edit this on her post, but I thought it was cuter this way.)

(Grandma, I just really think I am an angel either way, with or without the halo.)

Opening Presents:

Blake loved his Cars Mack Truck from his Cousin David. I think it is his favorite Christmas gift by far. Look how serious he his.

Tommy opening his presents from his Cousins Ethan and Audrey (look how excited they all are. This picture makes me smile. Tommy's best friends really are his cousins.I hope they always stay close.)

oh... so much fun! i don't think we realized how crazy christmas was for our parents when we were kids, but you're right... they're creating memories that will last a lifetime!

PS... You're right... the cookie drool is cute. When David saw the picture he said.."messy".. and I said... "Does David have a messy face?"... and then he started to cry.

Looks like a fun family tradition. The kids look really cute all dressed up in their costumes.
