Christmas Eve Celebration

Family Photo 
(Best comment: Scott says, "I didn't dress for a photo." Yeah we can tell.  Coincidence that all three of my brothers wore black?  It is Christmas Eve people!  At least we got a picture w/ everyone looking. . . a Christmas miracle!)

Peyton loves her Bitty Baby and Auntie Jodi thought Bitty would really like new pj's, bunny slippers and a robe.  I think Bitty will be pretty cozy sleeping from now on!

 Ella didn't have a Bitty Baby so Auntie Jodi changed that!  It was pretty cute watching her open it!  Ella's Bitty has lighter hair (just like Ella) and so her and Peyton will have dolls that look a little different.  She made everyone "raise your hand" and then picked someone to hold "her baby."  What a good mother!  Haha!  I hope she loves her Bitty as much as Peyton has.  

I also brought the American Girl Doll catalog and it was too cute watching them look at it.  Ella would say, "I want that."  This was repeated several times and it seems to me she wants it all!  It reminds me of when I was little and looking through the huge Sears catalog!  I also love that they are into dolls b/c I always loved my Cabbage Patch Kids when I was little and remember getting new things for them for many years at Christmas.  

We had a lovely Christmas Eve.  I had to work the first half of the day (unfortunately) but then went straight to my brother's house for presents and Chinese and Thai food (our Christmas Eve meal tradition).  I always forget to take a picture of all of the food but just imagine one of everything on the menu and that is what the kitchen counter looks like!  As usual I ate too much and was so full afterwards that I couldn't even eat a bite of dessert!  Oh well I'm sure there will be plenty of time for that today!

Santa was good to me even though he forgot my iPad.  I got a new Vera Bradley bag and necklace from Silpada among other things. . . looking forward to using my gift cards for some shopping and spa time too!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
