Christmas: Part 2

Christmas Eve.

We had a lovely Christmas Eve with all the family.
It was wonderful to have everyone there to celebrate.
The kids (mostly) made a delicious dinner of beef tenderloin (Pioneer Woman! Yum!),
famous mushrooms (a beloved family recipe, and Ansley's request),
and the fanciest salad ever, roasted beet and carrot, prepared by Preston.
Our resident chef.

After our dinner,
we read the Christmas story.
Of course, getting the girlies (mostly the little one) to sit still was challenging.
But, in the end, everyone took a turn reading.
We then watched a few videos.
Livvy thought baby Jesus was "so cute".

 Christmas Jammies!!
A Grubbs' family tradition.

Writing Santa a letter.
She made sure to ask for a note back.
Santa delivered :)
Leaving cookies and carrots.

It was so fun to share this sweet moment with my siblings.
I love the way they all love my girls.
I am grateful for loving Aunts and Uncles!!

Christmas Day to come.
