Eventually it was time for Christmas Eve dinner, pictures and presents. The kids were beside themselves with excitement knowing they were FINALLY going to get to open something!!!
Luckily, we had nice weather for Christmas Eve so we were able to take our annual family picture. I am so thankful Cheryl does this for us every year...and that she captures some of the fun of the present opening as well! It's nice for me to have a little picture taking break and still have these great shots. We had our traditional Christmas Eve dinner and everyone got great gifts...especially the kiddos though!
We then headed home to open our Christmas Eve present of new jammies (Preston was NOT impressed, haha!), took turns reading from Luke and put out treats for Santa and the reindeer. The kids tracked Santa from their beds on an app until 9pm when I took the electronics away and told them it was time to sleep :-). Oh, the anticipation!
