"I Will Not Go To Sleep Until Santa Comes!"

These words came out of my beautiful stubborn girl's mouth less than an hour ago. She is trying her hardest to stay awake! I love that about her, even though it makes me exhausted. Thankfully, since we are out-of-town and waiting to celebrate the bulk of our Christmas until DH gets home, I have no wrapping or "work" to do tonight. It has been nice to sit back and relax. I did go and buy her a few things, so she will have some presents to open in the morning when we go over to DH's stepsister's house. Tonight a few presents were opened and she was sad b/c she only got one gift - PJ's - while others were opening several.

Usually this "down time" that I am using to blog would be spent playing cards! Whenever we get together with any of DH's family, we play Euchre' or Dominoes - the family is very competitive. We have a lot of fun and stay up late playing, eating, and drinking :) I am sad without DH here, I miss him and the games!

Here are a few more Christmas Eve pictures:
