Christmas Eve

I spent the early part of the day cleaning so that we could enjoy our time and not be stressed over the state of the house. Then we went to my mom's and had a delicious meal and the kids opened their presents. It was simple and fun and relaxing, exactly what a family get together should be. 

Our evening was spent making beignets for Santa, Christmas pjs, eating sugar cookies, reading stories, and listening to Christmas music. I just love making these memories with my family. Years from now when the kids are thinking back on their childhood, they won't remember the specific toys they received, they'll remember these small little traditions. And hopefully pass them on to their own children. 

And because I can never resist...
