We all stood around the gifts, waiting to open them. It was around seven, but with fifteen girls, we knew we would be up late.

Lily Anna got to go first. A gift was dropped on her.

She put the stuff on, and thanked whoever gave her the gifts.

“Thank you Lily Anna!” She told her.

“Really?” Isabella said in surprise. “You got me a gift, even though I’m not staying?”

“Of coarse we did!” Mckenna assured her.

She sat down and opened it.

Then she hugged the nearest girl.

We left the gifts in the family room and went to make cookies.

The three of us made three different kinds.

DSCN6720[1]

Then we called them in to eat them.

DSCN6722[1]

We trotted up to hear the Christmas story.

DSCN6723[1]

Then we all got a book and went upstairs to read.

We were going to each read in out own bed, but instead we all got on the top.

It was a great Christmas Eve. I could only hope Christmas went just as well.

How did your Christmas Eve go?
