Christmas Eve 2009

We celebrated Christmas with JC's family on Thursday at his parents' house. We are so fortunate for everyone to live within about 30 minutes of each other.
JC's mom decided to have brunch this year. The hit of the day was definitely the Krispy Kreme donuts. I am not sure I want to know how many Brendan and Jackson devoured.
Then we opened gifts.

In the afternoon, we came home in time for Emma's nap. Then it was time to get ready for Santa. Jackson and I baked cookies, and we made reindeer food.
Jackson also decided that we should leave carrots for the reindeer this year along with sprinkling the magic food.

Just before bed we changed into our Christmas pjs, and Brendan read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.

We had a great Christmas Eve, and we all went to bed with visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads!!!

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas eve! Emma is a doll and seems to be enjoying her first Christmas with your family.

My boys got the Wii Madden football, too and that's almost ALL they have been doing all weekend!
