Christmas Eve Recap

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. Watching Hunters excitement over all the gifts was truly the best present. We were truly blessed by all the wonderful gifts we got from family and my house is now covered in trucks, buses and cars.

We spent Christmas Eve at Kristian's sisters house along with his parents and our nieces and nephews. We had a wonderful dinner and spent about 2 hours opening the massive pile of gifts.  Hunter passed out in the car on the way home.

One of the biggest trees I've seen. This was before Kristians parents arrived with all their gifts. The entire floor was covered in presents. 

It's amazing that this was our 6th Christmas Eve together!

And our second as a family of 3.

Hunter with his cousins including two of his new step-cousins. 

The lovely ladies. 

The handsome men.

Hunters big gift from his Aunt and Uncle was this ride on excavator. He LOVED it and spent most of the night riding it and trying to pick up the trash with the digger part. 

He also got his own "laptop" so hopefully he will leave mine alone! 

The funniest part of the night was when my mother-in-law showed up wearing the exact same necklace I had bought her for Christmas!!! What are the odds that not only would she already have the necklace but would be wearing it that night. Not only that but my MIL had bought the SAME necklace for my sister-in-law as a gift!! Every year my MIL and I seem to buy the same gift for someone, I think we share a brain. I told her to just return the necklace and get something else but she insisted I keep the necklace so that all three of will now have it. So I agreed and now I'm on the hunt to get her something else. 

I love Christmas Eve, we always have a great time with my in-laws and still have the anticipation of Christmas morning ahead.
