Christmas Eve

Yesterday, I posted our 2012 Family Photo!  If you missed it, hop over and check it out!  It turned out really good, all 12 of us are looking at the camera and smiling.  The amazing feat is it only took us five tries!  I’m happy with the photo we ended up with!

Today, I’m going back a couple days to Christmas Eve and sharing some fun photos of our family that were taken on Christmas Eve!

DSC_0311Pretty sure this is my token blog picture…. I seem to use this pose a lot!

DSC_0329Grandma opening a beautiful plant/flower from Aunt Sue!

DSC_0331My dad all proud he put together (part of) Merida’s bed, from the Movie Brave, a piece of the castle Emmalee got.  I couldn’t get this bed together for the life of me!

DSC_0333-2Madison started a family Christmas Carol sing-a-long after we all ate a yummy dinner of ham!

DSC_0334-2Everyone, sing!

DSC_0354-2DSC_0362My dad even had us break into Hava Nagila, channeling our inner Jewish roots!

DSC_0370Kelly & Zak weren’t nearly as impressed with the family sing-a-long!  And yes, that is Kelly “stabbing” a fork in Zak’s eye!

DSC_0375Alex tried to end the singing by starting a spoon sticking contest!

DSC_0380Grandma helping Emmalee open her Christmas Eve pajamas!  A LONG running family tradition!  Grandma always buys the grandkids new pajamas on Christmas Eve.  Now it’s just the little girls who get special PJ’s from Grandma!

DSC_0385Even though we don’t get specially picked out Grandma pajamas, we all get matching pajamas to wear on Christmas Day.  You must wear the pajamas to be admitted to the table for Christmas dinner!

Are you curious what our pajamas looked like??

I love my family!  We always have a blast together and I feel so blessed to have them all live so close to me!

Up next…Christmas Day!
