We began with our ginger bread houses. I always buy the Halloween gingerbread houses after Halloween for 70% off, then we just throw out the candy it came with and buy our own.... which I may have bought way too much of!

Including this one...which has somehow become a tradition every year
We ended the evening with Eric reading the scripture account of the Savior being born while the kids acted it out. Then it was time for hot chocolate, getting cookies ready for Santa and off to bed. (Which meant wrapping time for Eric and I)
At 6:00 AM on the dot, I heard Lucas wander into Alex's room to wake her up. They quickly made their way to our room where they talked loudly hoping to wake Ryder up. We eventually gave in and let them go wake him up.
Eric and I went downstairs and got everything ready then let the kids come down.
It was wonderfully fun excitement all morning long!
