As is our tradition, my parents come over on Christmas Eve night. We prepar and enjoy tons of different appetizers and snacks, we watch a Christmas Movie (this year was Santa Clause 3) and allow the kids to give out the gifts that they bought for everyone.
If there was ever a Christmas that had a theme, this was it...horses, horses, horses!! If they made a toy in the shape of a horse, we now own it, along with assorted versions of horse pj's, shirts, socks, hats, sweatshirts, blankets, pillows, sheets and art!! Katie on the other hand was quite happy to sit in her new little red chair from the Pottery Barn and watch everyone else open their presents.
The best gift of all turned out to be the one we swapped with Dan's sister and her family..the Nintendo WII! It's amazing how much fun this little machine can be, not only for our family, but for whomever we have over. On any given night in our house you might find us in the living room practicing to become professional bowlers, tennis players, Barbie Island Pricesses, High School Musical singers or famous Rattatouille Chefs!!
