Who Doesn't Love Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is the Best. Everyone is so happy. The excitement is still there but Christmas Day is close enough that you can really enjoy the anticipation. Christmas eve is really my favorite night of the year. This year was even better because we had David's Mom and Dad staying with us. It was so much fun to have help on Christmas morning. We got to see everyone open everything because we has so much help opening packaging so the kids didn't get bored waiting to open their stuff. I wish we could have grandparents with us every Christmas morning.

We have kept my family tradition of a chandelier present. We all get one small gift and hang it on the chandelier. We open it as soon as Christmas eve dinner is done. It is a fun little gift.

Nana's flight was supposed to come in the day before Christmas eve, but it got cancelled and she had to come the next day. Her flight got in just in time for Christmas Eve dinner. She was surprisingly happy even though she had just traveled an entire day. We love them so much. They are the best house guests you could ever have.
Our latest tradition is for David to play Christmas Carols on his guitar while we all sing along. It is the best time of the night for me.

I love all the new blog posts! Did I tell you that David inspired BJ? On our way home from your house, he called his Mom to find out what had happened to his Dad's old guitar. She still has it and is going to bring it up to Utah next time she comes of to visit (later this month). He is going to start learning how to play too. Awesome!
