Merry Christmas, one and all!

There are many things in our house that signify Christmas Eve, such as stuffing the stockings and making sweet potato casserole for the next day. But NOTHING says Christmas Eve around here quite like Christmas Eve PJs, a tradition started when Nathaniel was a baby.

Every Christmas Eve, the boys get to wear a set of coordinating PJs for the first time. They love them and look forward to being surprised with them every year.

Last night was no exception. When the PJs were brought out, there was much celebration and pushing and shoving to see who could get theirs on first. THAT is the Christmas Spirit at its finest, no?

I snapped a few shots before they unwillingly went off to bed ... they wanted to stay up All Night Long, but those PJs HAVE to be put to good use. IN A BED.

Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope that this morning you reflect on the holiest of the holies ... the one who gave His life for us. As I look at my smiling boys' faces, I cannot imagine any of them going through what Jesus did to save us from our sins. He is indeed the reason for the season.

Love to all!

Your tree is LOVELY!!! I finally bit the bullet and did the all blue and white tree I've wanted for a couple of years. We do the new pjs on Christmas eve too and this is the first year that we missed out.

Thank you! This is only our second year with the colored-lights tree, and although I have always preferred white, the colors are growing on me.
