More Christmas Eve...

I love traditions and I've been so grateful that Marcus and I have been able to create family traditions of our own while also maintaining some of the traditions from when we were growing up. One of the traditions from my childhood is that we have snacks and appetizers on Christmas eve. My mom figured out pretty early that with six kids making a full meal on Christmas eve was not worth her effort, since we were all too wound up to eat. Eli was particularly fond of the chocolate in the cookies. 
He helped himself to several cookies...

At the chocolate out of it and then moved onto another cookie. 

Our Christmas Eve feast haha.

In Marcus' family their family tradition was to get matching Pajamas on Christmas eve, and so that lives on as well. My mother in law was encouraging Emmy to jump off the couch it makes for some great action pictures.

She loves jumping

And Eli wanted to play too.
