Christmas Eve

I love Christmas Eve....who doesn't?!?!  Our day began with the traditional opening of the Christmas jammies.  Cole was so excited to open one present even if it was clothes.  We showered and immediately got comfy in our jammies.  

 Then Nannette and Poppy, Great Grandma Stella and Great Grandpa Jones came over and I fixed a big lunch.  The kids played, we watched football and just had a relaxing afternoon.  It was great!

 Then it was on to my parents house for our annual gingerbread house contest, good food and family fun!  This year the contest was boys vs. girls and I hate to admit it but I think the guys won this year.

 The girls did a more traditional house while the boys created The Ballpark in Arlington.  It was so cute!  Then we ate chicken chili and my mom made the most amazing adult dessert beverages.

 This was one of the many outtakes from our cousin photo shoot.

 We headed back to our house and Cole put out cookies and milk for Santa and sprinkled Reindeer food on our porch.

 Then it was off to bed so Santa could come......
 .....and believe it or not we decided to set our camera out to see if Santa would take a picture of himself in our house and he DID!  When Cole saw the picture Christmas morning it blew his mind!
