Christmas Eve, Part 2

Still one more post on Christmas Eve to come after this one :-).
After our traditional Christmas Eve dinner (prime rib, yorkshire pudding, 24 hour salad, creamed corn, potatoes and rolls), it was on to the exciting stuff...opening presents! Our kids were SOOO excited! I love watching our kids open their presents...and everyone else opening theirs too. Hooray for Christmas and hooray for Cheryl, who took all these fun pictures to capture the memory of the night! Thanks Cheryl :-)!
Some of my mom's festive decorations first though...

there was some corn hole played again this year as well, but not as much because of the colder temps

Addie won the best present opener award for sure. She has such great reactions and said sweet things all night like, "I love everything you gave me because I love you!" I hope everyone gets to know that super sweet side of her! Ella was hysterically non-reactive despite my best efforts at giving her tips before we arrived. I am not the greatest present opener either, although I have hopefully improved over the years :-), so I can't get too frustrated with her about it.
