Christmas Eve 2012

Christmas Eve is always one of my favorite days.  And it's usually a busy one!

It's tradition to go to breakfast for my mom's birthday, so we all met up at IHOP for our little celebration.

 All day long, it snowed outside.  It wasn't very fun to drive in, but it meant one great thing:


That afternoon, there was a little bit of time for some rest and relaxation before everyone came over to celebrate mom's birthday.  (I say some rest and relaxation, but does that really ever exist??)

We had taco salad and cherry chip cake with fluffy frosting.  (And you've gotta love the photo-bomber in the top right cake picture!)

After the cake was eaten and the presents were opened, we piled into cars and headed over to see the Festival of Lights.  My mom hopped into the car with me, Abbi, Easton and Camden.  Camden wasn't very happy and cried most of the time, but I think the other two kids really liked the lights.

Even though it was late, the kids had to open their Christmas Eve presents.  And of course, it was new jammies!!  Everyone was pretty exhausted, so the kids went to be pretty easily to wait for Santa to come!
