The Griswald Family Christmas Eve

In order to have room for 13 people to sleep at our house on Christmas Eve, we brought the camper over in true Griswald family style. It snowed that afternoon, but just barely. 

We decorated sugar cookies, played games and snacked all day long.

 My dad couldn't stand it and gave Lauren her present right away. 

The candlelight service at church was beautiful!  Rick Trevino led us in singing Christmas carols and it even snowed inside the church! It meant so much to us to have our family with us to celebrate Jesus' birth and to see the boys so excited brought tears to my eyes.

That night we had a dirty Santa gift exchange and did our tradition of opening pajamas while reading The Night Before Christmas.

That night we set out cookies for Santa, tucked the kids into to bed and anxiously awaited Santa's arrival.
