Christmas Eve

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve at Gino and Linda's (David's brother and wife). The food was amazing (I neglected to take a pic since I had my hands full with Gianna.) The appetizers were many and dinner was delicious. Not to mention, spending time with family is always fun!

Gemma and Spencer had a blast playing with their cousins and Gianna and I spent most of our time walking up and down the stairs. David and I forgot to bring a gate so when Gianna saw the stairs, I knew what I'd be doing for the remainder of our visit.

Gianna made some friends....

Gemma, Spencer and Joshua (cousin) played music....

We decided to hit the road around 7:30 - Gianna was ready for bed and Gemma and Spencer were anxious to get ready for Santa's arrival! Those two have never gotten ready for bed so quickly! I told them we could check Santa's location on the computer - we were safe, he was still in Canada! They chose a snack for Santa, each wrote a note and then they were off to bed!

Gemma felt Santa should have something a little healthier than milk and cookies - we went with a honeycrisp apple and apple juice!
