Christmas Eve at my Grandma’s house was always my favorite Christmas tradition. 80 people crammed in a small house, lots of chaos, and lots of love. Since my grandma passed away in September, things were different this year. My Uncle David, the youngest child, hosted. Everyone got a present from my grandma’s house. It was an emotional night, but everything went really well. The kids each got a present in the exchange and a gift from grandma. Macie got a barbie doll, Gavin got a truck, and Lilah got a jean purse. Brian got some tools and I got a willow tree family keepsake box and a rosary in a gold box. They are things I will always treasure!
Overall, the kids were pretty well behaved until the end. They played with cousins, entertained the adults, and played with a duct taped cardboard box. Who needs presents?? Before we left, I changed the kids into their Christmas pjs from St. Nick. Once we got home, it was straight to bed so that Santa could visit!
