Christmas fun

There are so many fun Christmasy things to do with your family in December! I love the excitement the kids have for each thing we do. We always drink tons of hot cocoa(with Biscotti, yum!), watch lots of Christmas movies, decorate a gingerbread house, and this year the kids even painted ornaments. Christmas Eve was spent making and decorating sugar cookies for the big man, watching a movie, and having our annual family Christmas Eve "party" where we made lots of yummy party foods: meatballs, pigs in a blanket, pizza bites, chicken wings, chips and different delicious dips, and the kids favorite sprite/sherbet punch. The kids were really big helpers! We also did our family gift exchange that night. Each year we draw a name and get to purchase a gift for that family member. You'll see in the last picture that Ammon loved the gift Joey bought him:) And we always end the night reading from Luke and having the kids act out the parts with our toy nativity set. It was a wonderful Christmas Eve! Sad all the Christmas fun is already over :(
