We had a busy day on Christmas Eve. We always get together with both sides of the family. This year we hosted the Wikstrom side. We eat, then open Christmas Eve socks and PJs. My house is small, so we were kind of cramped, but not cramped enough to stop doing it. This is my boys with their cousins opening their stuff.After that we went to my moms house. There is always food at her house as well. We play games while we are there. This is me and Tyler playing BINGO. Tyler was playing my card and his hoping to win.
There is a game that Jeff and my niece (Marci) just love and are so competitive at. You have a pair of dice. You roll doubles with the dice, then you have to put on a pair of mittens and get a present out of a bag and unwrap the present with the mittens on, all while the next person is trying to roll doubles. When they get doubles, your turn is over. If you have not completely unwrapped the present, you have to put the gift back in the bag and then pass it on. Also, all the wrapping from opened presents is supposed to go back in the bag as well so that its harder to find a present. We end up having to wait for the smaller kids to at least have the mittens on before the next person starts rolling the dice. Jeff and Marci happened to be sitting next to each other so they were funny.
Once we came home, we took pictures of the kids in their new PJs by the tree and then its off to bed. Yay!
