Kristmas Eve 2010

Kristmas Eve is always fun, however it is even better celebrating traditions with the ones you love. This year Christmas is being celebrated in Colorado Springs with Tiffany, Roger, and all the kids.

We of course started the evening out with playing games. Here are Brigham, Kade, and Michael.

We then all went outside and sprinkled reindeer food on the ground so that santa and his reindeer would stop at our house and have something to eat. (It's just oatmeal and glitter=))

Here is Kade sprinkling reindeer food

Kade, Briggs, and Michael spreading all their reindeer food. Rudolph is eating well tonight!!!

Maggie had a blast, and emptied her entire bag all by herself with a huge smile on her face.

We then put candles in cupcakes and sang Happy Birthday to Jesus. He is after all the reason we celebrate Christmas, and it is a nice reminder to the children of that!

Kade enjoying his cupcake
We then all sat and watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas (which is one of Roger's family traditions).
Maggie and Pop made the breakfast caserole
... and then all of the boys got to sleep in the same room together on the boys new bunk beds. They had so much fun "trying" to wait up for Santa in their room. In fact several times, we found them all standing at the window whispering about Santa and when he and his reindeer would arrive. I guess sleep was not a priority tonight!
The stockings were hung with love and care...
...and Tiffany tried out the kids new sleigh. I think we need snow for this one LOL!
Can you spy Tiffany in all of these presents? We put most of the gifts under the tree tonight so the kids would wake up and be surprised at all that "Santa" brought them. This was so much fun.
The finished product!
Merry Kristmas Eve!!!
