Christmas Eve and Morning

Let's just face it- I am not good at this blogging thing.  I just can't seem to find the time to keep it up, so here is Christmas, almost 4 months later, but whatever.

This year we had a tur-duck-en for Christmas Eve dinner and it was SO good!  Alye and Olin made smashed sweet potatoes and I made macaroni and cheese for side dishes.
The tur-duck-en was a first for all of us, so it took quite the group effort!
After dinner we got in our pajamas and attempted our traditional Christmas Eve night pictures in front of the tree.  Just keepin it real...this is what our life looks like...lots of fighting over toys.

We started a new tradition this year and it was so much fun!  Tucker got so frustrated the weeks before Christmas when Cameron and I would come home from parties talking about Dirty Santa.  He wanted to play, too!  We even played several pretend DS games.  So, I thought it would be fun to play on Christmas Eve.  We had a $10 limit.  

Cameron ended up with a giant light up candy cane which was hilarious!  And Olin's gift was lost before he ever even got it (we found it about a week ago).  But we had so much fun!

We woke up Christmas morning to find that Santa had come!  He brought the boys so many fun things!

We had fun playing with all of our new toys!

We had to tear Cameron away from the Wii!
