Christmas Eve

We kicked off Christmas Eve with a fancy dinner.

With presents finally wrapped and under the tree after making it a low priority all month, we were ready to go.

Blake was out of bed for the first time in days after being sick with the flu.

We were glad that he had some of his energy back but some of the rest of us weren’t as lucky. My dad missed Christmas Eve dinner and could barely sit up during presents. There was so much coughing in one vehicle as we drove around to look at lights that it was comical. We felt so bad passing on the flu to our five additional house guests.
We pressed forward with festivities even though it wasn’t quite what we were hoping. Blake led us in acting out A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

The boys and their cousin Ollie opened Christmas pajamas.

Then it was time for my favorite Christmas tradition; sibling gifts. This year, the boys gave to the brother three younger than them.

That meant Nash had Blake. He gave him a Nanoblock grand piano kit.

Crew had Nash and gave him a Harry Potter paper flyer book.

Finn gave him reindeer antlers he was dying to have.

So funny the things they find so much joy in.

Last to open was Finn.

Blake picked out a toy screwdriver for Finn and it was a hit.

There’s always so much love seeping out from the givers and receivers during the sibling exchange and I love that we do it separately on Christmas Eve.
We capped off the night with a wrapping paper fight before we tucked the boys in bed with visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads.
