Christmas 2014: Christmas Eve

I am breaking my Christmas posts up because there is just too much to share. While like usual, things didn't go exactly liked I had hoped, we really did have a great Christmas and I am very thankful for everything we have. I worked on Christmas Eve and got out at about 3. I headed home to feed my dogs and then I was meeting the rest of my family at church for Christmas Eve Mass at 4 p.m. We always go to Christmas Eve mass but this was our first time at this church (by my new house) and this was also the earliest we have gone in a while. It was SUPER PACKED and it is a huge church so that means a ton of cars and people. It can be very stressful, however, all of the kids actually did really well. After mass we took some pictures at church and then headed to my sisters/moms. Growing up we always opened presents from aunts/uncles/cousins/grandparents on Christmas Eve and so we continue that tradition with lots of appetizers as well instead of a big dinner. We save the big dinner for Christmas night. Everly loved her gifts, especially the scooter from Grandma. I got the boys a kitchen and I hope they get a lot of use out of it. Everly loved her Christmas dress that my mom bought her and wouldn't put on her Christmas jammies, so I guess at least she didn't hate her dress. Aspen got lots of cute clothes and it was a really fun night. I think I like Christmas Eve the most!
