We have a tradition in my family to get new pajamas on Christmas Eve. It's one of my favorite memories and so I've carried it on in my own little family. Alexa was so mad at us the day we went to buy our Christmas Jammies because we wouldn't let her see them....they were a SURPRISE! So by the time Christmas Eve rolled around, she was pretty excited to finally see her jammies.
And then she helped Payton unwrap hers and Payton didn't really know what to think about this whole present thing!
MATCHING JAMMIES!!! I've been so excited to see them in these cutest jammies ever!
And here's Alexa showing off her new pj's!
Then we tried to get a family picture....this is one of several takes that didn't turn out but I thought this one was pretty funny!!
Here's the keeper!

Then we went to our friends, the West's, for a Christmas Eve Party. There was good food, great company and the wonderful Spirit of Christmas! They had all the children participate in the reading of the Nativity and Alexa got to be an angel.
Here's our little family by the West's beautiful Christmas tree.
Our photographer wanted to take an "artistic shot"!!
Merry Christmas Eve!!
Now it's time for Santa to come...
