Christmas Eve

Every year since Viv was a baby, we have attempted a family sleepover in front of the Christmas tree. Every year since Viv was a baby, we have failed haha. This year was just as fun and crazy as the others. More kids equals more crazy. We had a picnic dinner in the basement, watched a Christmas movie, and then we tried the sleepover... we lasted an hour. One hour of giggles, somersaults, wiggles, pillow talk, singing, and eventually we lost our patience and went to our own beds. It was fun while it lasted. Fast forward a few days and we tried again on Christmas Eve. We spent the day at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Cambridge with all the cousins. So much fun that the girls were exhausted and fell asleep instantly in front of the tree. New tradition born! Crazy fun Christmas Eve fun with family and then crash in front of the tree. They didn't even wake up when we got the presents out of the secret hiding spot in the closet right by where they slept haha. Yay!
