Christmas Eve

We started the day finishing up the decorating! Alec really liked helping Grandma put all the old school ornaments on the tree.

Then, after skyping with my siblings to watch our kids open up their cousin exchange gifts, we got together with my next door cousins and my grandma for Christmas Eve traditions. Starting with matching pj pictures:

Whole group pictures, topped off with the never-missed cousin pyramid.

Reenacting the Christmas Story, complete with costumes.

Finishing off with singing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus and the little cousins blowing out his candle for him.

Then it was off to bed for the kids, and off to the store for mom and dad to get the last stocking stuffers and a fun puzzle to do together.
