Christmas Eve

Our family tradition, since us kids have grown up, is to spend Christmas Eve at my parents house. We have a nice dinner, and Santa Claus comes to pass out presents to all the grand kids. Then we play a white elephant game to pass out gifts to the rest of us. Its always a fun time. (I know I didn't get pictures of everyone, so if you had your camera, and you want to share, please send them my way!)
This year Ellie was far more into the whole present thing. Having her birthday in November she was confused why she couldn't open all the presents like she did before. She thought all of them were hers and she should be able to open any present whenever she wanted. Mostly she was pretty good about it, I just left all the presents in my closet until Christmas morning. She was also very much into Santa. She was so excited to see him at the mall, until we went up to sit on his lap, then, "he skered me!" She loves seeing the picture of her on his lap though. Then when Santa came to see us at my parents house she could barely look at him. She did sit on his lap, but not very willingly. She was still very excited about it after he left though! (thanks so much Steve, love you for doing that!!!)
