Christmas Eve 2011

Our tradition is to spend Christmas Eve with my side of the family and then Christmas Day with Dean’s side of the family.  So for Christmas Eve we went to my brother and sister-in-law’s home for Christmas.  We had a wonderful time hanging out with my parents, brother and sis-in-law and our nieces.  It was a low key celebration.  We enjoyed a Mexican dinner and then my mom made homemade sopapillas for dessert along with my cupcake creations.  We had a nice time and loved seeing the joy and excitement in our nieces faces as they opened up their gifts.
If this expression doesn't scream EXCITEMENT I don't know what does!

Lila loved her new polka dot hoodie

Doesn't this look scream EXCITEMENT?!  Maybe not!

Yeah for new PJ's!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!  Remember that Christ is the reason for the season!
