I think the best part of Christmas Eve is that Jeremy takes the day off. What a treat for the kids, and me! Zac pretty much kept him occupied all day long. He loved spending time with his daddy! That night our most fabulous neighbors decided to start a new Christmas Eve tradition by taking us all out to Olive Garden. Mmmmmm. “Uncle Rick” and “Aunt Lisa” are the best! We had a great time at dinner and then went to the temple to walk around (umm, walk off some of those breadsticks!) and see the lights and the nativity. A most amazing place to be on the Eve of celebration of the Saviors birth.
When we got home it was Christmas Eve PJ time! Everyone always loves getting new jammies! We also finished the last chapter of the scriptures together. It was an awesome experience! The excitement was waaaayyy high, so off they went to pour oatmeal outside and leave carrots in random places for Santa’s reindeer. No one wants to be hungry on Christmas!
The rest of the night we kept busy updating the Santa Tracker on the computer, making lots of silly faces, playing a game of Risk, making a breakfast casserole for morning…thank you Erin for eating the crusts of the bread that I didn’t need…and finishing out the night with none other than:
ROCKY! (a jeremy call tradtion)
