+we borrowed from our brother in law's family tradition and feasted on steak and crab legs for our christmas eve dinner. yum. we all had to roll ourselves to bed that night.
+we had the most chaotic little nativity ever. Luke was "jofus" and Elsie was the baby Jesus. We had two angels, a shepherd, a wiseman, and a little mary too. It probably lasted three minutes, and Luke hated his costume.
+there isn't anything much sweeter than my babies in matching christmas jammies on christmas eve.
+I love playing santa and setting up the stockings for the next morning. It's such a pretty sight, with the twinkling tree lights.
