Christmas Eve at Grandma's

Christmas seemed to last for several days this year. On Christmas Eve my brother Jonathan and his family were able to come for a visit. Grandma had the girls make these cute place settings for our Christmas Eve dinner.

They turned out super cute and the girls enjoyed making them.

While the girls were creating the boys sat in front of the computer playing games with each other.

We had twenty people present this day. We were missing my brother Travis and his family. They would come up the day after Christmas.  Come dinner time the five youngest ate their dinner in the adjacent room. We heard lots and lots of giggles and laughter from this table of 5 year olds and younger.

The adults sat at the table with the big girls. They boys sat at Grandma's island. 

Following dinner we made our way to the front room and some of us exchanged our gifts. This year my siblings and I exchanged gifts by using the word SANTA. We each gave gifts using those letters. 
Jonathan and his family received things like starbursts, air heads, twizzlers and I don't remember the other's. It was something fun and a little different to do this year.
