Christmas Eve Festivities!

Here are all the Christmas Eve festivities we were able to have fun doing with the Colton family...We will start with the classic picture by the tree of course...
...and then the family picture...we were all together again which hasn't happened for years!

our favorite Christmas eve dinner tradition: Candlelight Arby's! Easy and we have no idea how it all began (don't we love traditions!)

We are needing three tables now to fit us all! Our baby boy will make 15 grandchildren!

Aly is 7 months! I'm only's fun to do a little comparison :)
...and of course our gingerbread making! We like to get into two teams and have a little friendly competition...mostly the adults putting together the base and all the kids decorating which can get pretty messy :)

...gathering around for Christmas songs and Dad reads Luke 2 ...a good reminder of what this is all about. We are so grateful for the Savior, Jesus Christ.
Tay and I decided to add a little fun to our program by having mom and dad open up a gift with clues for the gender of our baby! It's a boy! They opened up a box with a little blue onsie and the ultrasound pics. So fun!

...reading stories :) Tay is so cute with kids!
...and as always, Becca's funny faces! love em!

It was so good to have Jake in town to be with us from Chicago!
... and of course Nate, Amber and Connor! I loved holding him as much as I could! It made me even more excited for our little boy on the way :)

Oh don't we love baby boys! You can tell that's pretty much all that's on my mind now!
