Decorations were up and ready.
Cookies were made (with my mom's help this year as they joined us for Christmas)
Gingerbread houses were assembled. (there may have been a few tears during this process)
And of course some candy was consumed. (Notice Alex's mouth)
My parents shared a kit and they definitely the won the award for neatest and most sound construction.

In the evening we acted out the nativity.
This year my Dad made his debut as the Inn Keeper where he told Joseph and Mary to "Go Away", which got laughter from all.
Ryder, the shepherd created his own sheep with a frisbee with a ball taped to it for it's head, his idea, and my mom played the angel.
My Dad also played a wiseman and was much more reverent for this role.
We finished the night with some egg nog and putting out cookies and milk for Santa, which I forgot to get a picture of this year.
It was a wonderful Christmas Eve!
What Christmas Eve traditions do you have?
