The Stockings are hung....

It's Christmas Eve!!!! It doesn't really feel like it's that late in the year, or that it's even December to me, but here we are!!! We are so excited for the holidays and have a full packed schedule. We leave tomorrow night for Nevada, where we will spend St. Stephens day with my family!! It's been a tradition since the beginning of time to spend the day after Christmas (Stephens Day) at Nana's house. So, we will spend it @ Nana's house in Alamo. I.cannot.wait. The next morning, we will drive to Vegas where we will fly to Oklahoma, by way of Minnesota. We will spend the next few days with Tyler's family. We are so excited to be able to be there for Grandma Betty's wedding to Joe! We can't wait to meet him and are so excited for them :)

We have received so many treats this season...It has been great, but I can't even look at another piece of fudge or I WILL DIE!!!!

We kicked off our Christmas Eve with this for breakfast:

Ham & Cheese Souffle Roll a.k.a. So easy and SOOOOO GOOD! Click here if you want to give it a whirl.

Tonight we had homemade sweet n sour chicken for dinner with homemade eggrolls! So good! I may even make it a Christmas Eve tradition!!!

After dinner we decided to open one gift....Christmas PJs. It was a good trial run for Noah to unwrap a gift. He did great. haha.

His Christmas Pajamas:

Helping Daddy open his pajamas:

Tyler's exact words after putting on his new pajamas: "Ok, we're gonna have to turn the heat off if we are wearing pjs now." hahaha.

Here is our tree. Someday I might tell you how I wheeled and dealed for this beauty. Let's just say I got it for 1/2 the price during the Christmas season. Holla!!!! I'm a little ashamed to admit this, but I can't stand the suspense of surprises and have forced Tyler to let me open many of my presents and have even talked him into opening a few of his own!!! I swear, I will be better next year! As you can tell, most of my pics are from my phone, and they are not the best.....BUT....I wrote a letter to Santa for a new camera and I've been pretty good so....we'll see what happens in the morning!!!!

Merry Christmas!!!!
