Christmas Eve is always such an exciting day. Most of the day was just spent hanging out and enjoying each other. Some worked on finishing the second puzzle while others played games. In between all of that there was some cooking going on for our big Christmas Eve dinner of ham, rolls, sour cream potatoes, jello, stuffing, and pie. It was a fabulous meal. Everyone got on some nicer clothes for our dinner and when Peter came upstairs in his suit we all just laughed. He, of course, did that as a joke but then kept it on during dinner. After stuffing our faces we got on our coats and jumped in the car to go see the neighborhood lights. We went and saw the ridiculous house over in Pine Creek that resembled that of the house from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Lights were on every inch of that house and every piece of land they owned. It was so bright and crazy. Our favorite house, however, was the one that had synced music on the radio with a cool light show in front of their house. We stayed and watched for a couple of songs before heading over to another section next to Pine Creek with an entire coldesac of decorated houses. They had stringed lights between the houses and Santa on his sleigh riding between the houses. It was pretty cool. After we got home we got dressed up in our Christmas pjs and read from the scriptures. It turned out that Greg, Ruby, and Noble totally matched our family's pjs this year. The kids laid out the plate of cookies for Santa and the kids headed to bed while the grownups prepared for the next day.
