Christmas Eve and New Traditions

Daddy and Mama dancing

When I was growing up we spent Christmas Eve at my grandparents waiting to open Christmas presents. We have found that we have to keep the children up to late in order to keep this tradition. We instead have decided to start our own Christmas Eve family tradition.

This year we have pizza for dinner, did a little family dancing, and then we watched "The Nativity Story." What a great traditional Christmas Eve movie!! What a great movie period!

Daddy and James fall was James tries to spin daddy!!!

Our Children all fell asleep in time for us to put a few touches on Christmas presents and stocking. Then we got ready to go to our favorite Christmas Eve tradition of midnight Mass at St. Benedict Abbey. Starting new family traditions are always wonderful!!!

The children slept through most of mass which as always makes it very good for Mama and Daddy, we can actually hear the mass. James and Thomas were awake for the Christmas after party.
