Every Creature Was Stirring.....Even the Guinea Pig

Sunday, January 8, 2012

Sorry this is so three weeks ago, but I'm catching up for my memory keeping purposes. Here's what we did Christmas Eve. 

We spend every Christmas Eve evening in Lawton with my dad's side of the family. It is always fun and the unexpected always happens! 

This year we bought gifts for the kids, played Dirty Santa and ended the night with a good round of gambling. Now that's Christmas. Here's the night in pictures. 

Luke immediately found this really cool tree house at my cousin's house and played with it for the majority of the night. He's probably getting one for his birthday. It was really cool. He was fascinated with the pulley system it had that brought water buckets from the bottom to the top.

We very ambitiously attempted to make gingerbread houses for each family. If you remember correctly, Addison loves gingerbread houses!

Here's my dad attempting to frame our house.

There were presents to open for everyone. 
There was music to play and Barbies to open. 

Pictures to pose for. 

A race track to assemble. 

A guinea pig to play with. 

The kiddos watched a Christmas movie and delighted in some Christmas Eve popcorn. 

It was a very merry Christmas Eve!
