Christmas Eve With The Family: The Ugly Sweater Crew

Christmas Eve was a lot of fun this year. The entire family decided to wear Ugly Christmas Sweaters. We made our own using Dollar Store purchases – and it was so much fun. I cheated a little on bed rest that day — kept getting up for pics and I ate at the table. BUT it’s Christmas EVE! And besides – I knew that I would be in bed 100% during the rest of the week.

Anyway, the kids literally sat by the door and waited for everyone to arrive. They were SO VERY excited about the celebration.

My mother ran the show. She cooked everything and took care of the kitchen which was awesome.

I pretty much sat / lounged on the couch the entire night. But I have to admit – I was BEAT after everyone left … and a little crampy. So, I knew to not do something like this again. 🙂

We opened up the presents and the kids couldn’t wait to immediately start playing with them. I’m pretty sure everything got opened that night. My house… is a total disaster! LOL

We really had a great night. To see the rest of the pictures, click on the thumbnails below.
