Christmas Eve

On the 23rd we drove to Dan's parents and sister to spend the night. We always have such a great time with them. Kylie's cousin Paige is her age and the only girl surrounded by brothers. They are 2 peas in a pod! We could not resist the gorgeous weather so we took the kids to this great park right across the street. I loved watching them play with their cousins!

The Princesses

The 8 year olds

Ben was in his element

Grant loved his first time in a swing!

He was so happy to be out of the car!

My sister-in-laws had this great activity for the kids of decorating rice krispie treat houses. It was fun and way easier than gingerbread!

On Christmas Eve we drove back to my parents house for more fun! Every year Santa visits and the kids love it. My mom also put together a Christmas play complete with costumes. Grant was baby Jesus and he was so cute just cooing in the "manger". Afterwards the grandkids all change into matching pjs and open cousin gifts and then its off to bed. It is a really long day, but its worth it!

All the cousins with Santa
Ben's turn

Bradley as Joseph and Ben was a shepherd

Kylie was one of the "Heavenly Hosts".
(That is actually my baptism dress!)

Ben was a little crabby by this point.
