Day 21-24...

Day 21- Read Christmas Books & Drink Hot Chocolate
and go to Mackay's Basketball Game!

Day 22- Gingerbread Houses

and go to Mackay's Basketball game.

(Kenzie's & Hayden's Gingerbread Houses - Mackay ate his before I could get a picture)

Day 23- Hang Out
We were supposed to go to my aunt Carole's to deliver groceries and gifts, but my dad ended up doing that instead.
Aaron took the day off and we just hung out!

(After playing 6 Basketball games in 7 days... Mackay was BEAT!!)

Day 24- Go See a Movie (a family tradition) and then Christmas Eve Dinner at Jenn's House
We saw Tron - don't know if I would recommend it.

Jenn always puts together the Dutch Present (another family tradition).
It is the kids favorite!! The gift is wrapped MANY times with a poem about each child and they each open one layer.

Inside the Dutch Present are all the kids - Pajamas!!

(even Ben & Colin got jammies & opened the gift.)

Then... "all the Children were nestled
all snug in their beds....."

Didn't your mom always do the Dutch present, what a fun tradition. Looks like a fun family time.

What beautiful children they all are. It was fun to see Jessie so grown up.
Happy New Year!
