This year for Christmas after 9 years of marriage Jeff and I decided it was time to stay home for the holidays. So on Christmas Eve we went to Jeff's cousin Steve's house for dinner, Santa and a white elephant exchange. We had a lot of fun!!! Thanks Steve and Tana for having us! Then we went home to have Christmas Eve with the kids. It started with a later dinner of pasta, sparkling cider, and cake. Parker called it a "Family Date! Then we opened Pjs and My grandma had made some cute quilts for the kids so they got to open those. Then we played games and read stories, put out the stockings and cookies and went to bed. Christmas Eve was really fun! I loved staying home and starting our little traditions with our kids. And it was fun intermixing traditions from both sides of the family. eNJOY the slide show!
