Christmas Eve we held our 2nd annual Gingerbread decorating contest. Again the teams were girls vs. boys but after the walloping the girls delivered to the boys for the 2nd year in a row, I think we'll need to even out the teams next year.
Then we packed a ridiculous amount of people in our living room to exchange gifts with those we don't get to see Christmas Day. Not pictured is a most lovely spread of food that I look forward to every year.
Christmas morning started at 5:30am!!! AThe first time it's been so early. We made them go back to bed for a while but really, how well do you think that worked? Luckily Adalyn slept until 10! So at least one of us was well rested for our marathon that is Christmas Day. The girls were delighted by their gifts and I was proud that they really took time to look at each gift before moving on to the next.
Then to the Kelly Christmas, of which I have shamefully few photos. But was delightful anyhow. We always play the White Elephant Gift game with the adults We almost got to take home the bun and weiner toaster. Ahh, maybe next year:)
