Christmas Eve 2009

We always celebrate Christmas Eve with our extended family at Aunt Karen's house.
The evening starts with a dinner of Ham and sides like cheesy potatoes, pink salad, baked beans, etc supplied by the family.
After dinner we all start to gather in the living room, children & Adults alike.

Amanda & Brianna

Every year someone reads the Christmas Story from Luke 2.
This year we had the privilege of having Santa read it to us.

Most of the kids call him Papa Santa or Santa Max.
After singing Silent Night and Jingle Bells the children each got to sit on Santa's lap, where he gave them a present, a Santa Bag and a stuffed Dog.

Nick was the one of the oldest kids to sit on Santa's lap this year, he was a good sport about it.
After all of the kids finished with Santa Kelsey & Tyler opened a special gift from Santa & Aunt Karen, a book written by Aunt Karen about their Dad.
Then all of the kids got to open their Santa presents and go play in the family room, while the adults exchanged gifts, and visited.
