I'm not posting about the holidays very chronologically. You've already seen Christmas Day and a few peeks at New Years Eve, but I just found my pictures of Christmas Eve, so here they are!
We spent Christmas Eve at my parents' house, and after the festivities, moved all our stuff over to the LeSueurs' and spent the night and Christmas morning there. Both my siblings and a lot of my cousins with their families were there, and it was a wonderful time. We had enchiladas and tamales (Glenn assembled almost every single tamale single-handedly, by the way. And I tied them. My mom tricked us into it.) for dinner. There was also a pinata, and a very disorganized nativity (that's what you get when the stars are all under 18 months old).
(we went in age order, taking turns to hit the pinata. Glenn was the one who finally demolished it completely!)
(Mary, Baby Jesus, a shepherd. As I mentioned, it was disorganized to say the least)
Also, Santa came. Violet wasn't happy about it.
One of the coolest parts of the evening was my Uncle brought some lanterns to launch. They are exactly like the floating lanterns in the movie Tangled. They were so beautiful, and we didn't start any fires (that we know of)!
