We always host my side of the family at our house on Christmas Eve. We are a small bunch, just my parents and my sisters. We eat, exchange gifts, and then just hang out and they all get to play with A.J. We also track Santa on the internet, which of course builds the excitement!
Here are a few shots of the gifting….
My mom LOVES her new sewing machine! And I have some projects already lined up for her! LOL!
Rocky had to get in on the action…
A.J. got the Narnia book collection from Sherie. He loves to read and is very excited to start it!
Mom made us these neat cushions for lounging on….
A.J. with his aunts…
Rocky sure loved all the extra attention!
A quick pic of us before they left….
That night, after everybody left, we set out cookies for Santa (even though “Santa” had requested nachos…maybe next year!!) Then we read the Christmas story in the Bible and The Night Before Christmas before tucking A.J. in to bed. He said he was so excited he was “all tingly inside!” I loved it!
