Christmas Eve Stuff

Some people think we are crazy for staying in Orem with just the two of us for Christmas. We LOVE it. It's so fun to be able to create your own traditions, sleep in your own bed, do whatever we want and not have to worry about driving in the snow. We still miss our families at Christmas time but we do love having our own celebrations.

Every Christmas Eve we make a feast of junk food. Nacho's and guacamole, chips and chili and cream cheese dip, bbq chicken wings and koolaid. We whip everything up and then snuggle on the couch and watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. So much fun.

After we have gorged ourselves with delicious food and laughed till our sides hurt we open our presents from Bernard. Every year he leaves us Christmas jammies that we get to open.

This year we got matching PJ's which I love. They are soft and ever so comfy.

After we open our PJ's we read the Christmas story from the scriptures and
then take turns filling stockings and stuffing presents under the tree.
It was an absolutely perfect Christmas Eve.

Sounds like Jack's diet is out the window. I started making us matching jammies for Christmas. I love the tradition! After leaving this year we decided we'll never leave for Christmas again. We want to stay home.
