Christmas Eve found us at Ryan's parent's house for a par-tay. It was announced as a Grinch party- because no one likes too much Christmas spirit on Christmas Eve? (Just kidding, guys.)
There were some games. Picking up candy canes with one candy cane in your mouth is harder than it sounds.
Then we drove home. We wanted to leave early enough so we could have some settle down time before it was time for the girls to go to bed. I have a feeling we came and left from Ryan's parents like a noisy train, disrupting the natural flow of things. But we like to be home with our own little family, and I enjoy the calmness of Christmas day by ourselves with nowhere we have to go. With as fast as the kids grow up, I feel like I need to soak up as many of these holidays as I can.
So the girls got new pjs this year.
And I'm still glad we switched to the white Christmas tree lights.
