For the first time in 6 years we spent Christmas eve with the Sims family. My sisters and I have lots of wonderful memories spent with my Dad's family on Christmas eve and we carried on the tradition after we were married. However, once kids came along Jerry and I decided we wanted to be in our own house on Christmas morning. The way the holiday fell this year it worked best for us to go to Abilene on Christmas Eve. We spent the whole day eating, laughing, unwrapping presents, playing games and enjoying family. It was a wonderful day!
The scarf and umbrella I gave Lola were a hit
Cousin time is the best!
Unwrapping gifts with 11 kids can get a little crazy
Grandpa & Grandma give all the kids pj's for Christmas and then every year we try to get a get a picture of all the kids together. This year it seemed less crazy than usual
After taking several pictures we realized we were missing Kate and Lola! Oops- guess that happens when there are 11 grandkids!
We had a fabulous Christmas Eve and a beautiful candlelight ceremony at church
