christmas eve 2017

We started out Christmas Eve morning by going to The Last Jedi with the Burches and Uncle Danny.  
Gus insisted on wearing his Jedi robes and we let me because the Force just can't be contained in him...
 We went to a lovely 4:00 Mass at the Cathedral...
 Mom got the family picture she requested without too much trouble...
More pictures with Baby Jesus (we love him!)...
Oh, and then more group pictures at home because it is my Christmas too people!!
And they will all thank me someday for all the wonderful pictures I make them take..
We ate tamales for dinner and then it was time to open the Christmas Eve presents...
They aren't surprised to get books anymore, but at least they are still surprised which book...
And they legitimately are excited about them, too...
This Tomie dePaola Pop-Up book was a special find that mom was really excited about...
Francie was being extra adorable that night and couldn't stop dancing for everyone...
Then time for jammies and putting out cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer...
Then Dad read "The Night Before Christmas" as usual before getting in bed as soon as possible.
(Does it look like someone is tired of me taking pictures?)
Well, I certainly didn't stop taking pictures.  I just waited until the next morning to take a million more!
