Christmas Eve!

Okay, let's start with the dress. This is the dress that I got at Last Chance Thirft Store in Atlanta over Thanksgiving. I paid $2.99 for this dress. I am not sure how long Margaret will wear this dress before it is a complete mess, so I thought I would photograph the dress before she wears it. Yes, I know some of you former Last Chancers (Annie) are very jealous of this sweet find.Christmas Eve was full of excitement over here today. We had snow globes,

and Christmas trees to decorate with handmade and store-bought ornaments.

Choosing the perfect ornament each time was very important.

As was finding the perfect spot to hang the ornament.

There were laundry basket rides for cranky babies.

And gingerbread houses to decorate (and sneak licks off of).

Our Christmas Eve dinner is always a special time.

Here's to the coming birth of Christ!

We sang our last night of Advent songs and put the rest of the animals at the manger.

The boys opened up the traditional gift of the Christmas jammies. Margaret mostly tasted and slapped her present.

Then we had the traditonal photos of the kids in their Christmas jammies.

Here are the Christmas snowmen/angel.

We had to get some photos in front of the Christmas tree with the kids in those adorable new jammies!

Here is our crew ready to celebrate!

Now, if I could only get them to bed. Mike and I are sneaking away to our 9pm midnight Liturgy, and the boys have all gotten back up after being put to bed.
