Bryan has to work every Christmas Eve and so this year we decided to stay home on Christmas Eve, open presents Christmas morning, hang out and then go to my parents for dinner. Well, we didn't want to be home alone on Christmas Eve so we decided to invite Bryan's sister Jeanine and her family to come over. They said yes and we started planning a little family dinner. Then my sister Sara said that since Todd had practice on Christmas they weren't doing anything on Christmas Eve and we invited them. Well, my sister Amanda's husband is a police officer and he had to work Christmas Eve so she decided to come and hang out with us without him. After that my parents said they didn't want to stay home alone so they came too. Needless to say, our little party got pretty huge. I was worried because our house is small, but it ended up being the best Christmas Eve ever. The kids all had a blast and it was so fun hanging out with everyone.
