For the past few years, we've stayed the night at my mom's house EvErY Christmas Eve and woken up over there to celebrate Christmas.
This year, we decided that we wanted to wake up at our own house since we now have our own family.
Sooo...we changed up the traditions a bit.
All of us kids went over there for our usual Christmas Eve dinner of prime rib. It was ExTrA delicious because mom used new recipes for the green beans and carrots!
Then we all helped with the dishes.
Instead of waiting until the morning to open our gifts, we opened them all that night so that Isaac and I could have more time with each of our other families on Christmas Day.
Mom always gets us all matching pajamas and makes us take a picture in them...we cooperated well.
