Christmas Eve...

We had a great Christmas Eve this year!

Another wonderful prime rib dinner by my Amazing mom...


The tree. It is such a blessing to have a warm house, delicious dinner, and presents overflowing out from under the tree. I am so grateful for our families and all of our blessings!


Haha, Lance doesn't take pictures. So this is about the only picture I'm in :)...


The grand kids all acted out the Christmas story for us. (except Parker, who would not participate :) Layton is the shorter shepherd in the front...


In my family the kids all open the presents that are under the tree, on Christmas eve. The cousins draw names for each other and their gifts (a big truck with a trailer and 4wheeler/motorcycle behind it) were the big hit for my boys.



Layton ran over and gave Isaac a huge hug after he opened his present from him...


In their Christmas Eve jammies, playing with the cousins...


Haha, can you tell he is ready for Christmas!!!


Monkey Bread is a long running Christmas morning tradition at out house. Nobody makes it like my mom does! (With Parker's help of course :)



Then all the kids have a big sleep over together in a spare room at my parents. 8 kids in one room... need I say more?!?


Oh I love Christmas!!! Maybe that is why it is January 7th and I still have my tree up!
