Merry Christmas Eve! Norad has just announced that Santa has made it to North America! Wahoo! I can’t wait until I can help Lexi track Santa on Christmas Eve!

Here’s what we’re dealing with in Oklahoma:

I LOVE the fact that Lexi’s first Christmas is going to be a white Christmas!

But, sitting here right now I’m almost ready to cry! I’m so scared that my family (Mom, Dad, Lisa, Kristin) aren’t going to be able to make it into town for Christmas tomorrow because of the snow that we’ve gotten today/tonight.
Every year growing up we would get up early on Christmas morning. Partly because we wanted to, but partly because Dad had to go to work (he works on a ranch and works pretty much every day of the year.) Then we would go to Grandma Eva’s (Dad’s mom) for lunch and opening more presents. Our family is super close and this is a really special day for us! We’ve never not made it to town, even the year that the whole family was so sick that we could barely sit up. So, I don’t even want to think about it…because I literally will end up crying myself to sleep on Christmas Eve!

I’m going to have to get old pictures scanned into the computer so I can post pictures of our past Christmases!

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas! If you’re somewhere where the weather is bad…stay safe!

Several years ago my sisters, cousins, and I started a Christmas Eve Eve tradition. We are a very close family and all the cousins were very close growing up. Now that we’re all growing up and going our own ways we don’t get to spend as much time together as we would like. This day helps bring us back together for the holidays. The first few years were celebrated with some kind of craft. We did ornaments, stockings, shirts, and cookies. Running out of crafts we started doing Murder Mystery Parties! This year we the holidays snuck up on us and we ran out of time to order a new Murder Mystery game. So tonight we will go out to eat, play games, watch TV, and just have fun together. One of the best things is that we will all crash here when the night is done, and when we wake up it will be Christmas Eve! I love my family!
