Christmas Eve Photos

My goal is to post my Christmas pictures before New Years. Here are some photos of Christmas Eve with family... starting with baking our traditional Christmas cookies:

Followed by our traditional family photo in front of the Christmas tree:

This year's family Christmas Eve party was at my cousin's house. I wanted to share a picture of the food because my friend, Mary, is always interested in what we have for dinner. There were two meats that I missed: salmon and chicken.

Games follow dinner... team Rudolf (Cheryl and I were on Rudolf) against team Frosty (Chris and Jim were on Frosty). Team Rudolf won!

Here are Jim and Cathy on team Frosty, trying to launch a plastic cup onto a bottle.

Guess who won? Team Rudolf! Go Uncle Tom! YAY, team!

Christmas Eve isn't complete without a visit from Santa! Here are the kids waiting for Santa:

Here's Santa! I bet you never saw a Santa like this one... I think he's related to Sponge Bob Square Pants.

Well, I think that's enough pictures to overwhelm everybody! If you made it this far, thanks for sticking to it. Pictures of Christmas Day are coming soon!
