Our Christmas Eve

As do most families, we have traditions that are important parts of our holidays, especially on Christmas Eve. As a special treat before dinner this year, Rich and the kids had practiced ahead of time with the guys performing Jingle Bells on the keyboard, recorder, and saxophone while Shelby sang along. I loved that they did this...Grandpa had such a great idea and made it happen!

After sharing opÅ‚atki, accompanied by a special blessing for each person, our dinner includes several Polish dishes. No, the glass of wine was not Jackson's, it was Grandpa's.

After dinner, gifts from family back home are opened; the first gifts opened though are the kids' new Christmas pajamas which they stop and put on immediately. Sandee and Dexter enjoyed watching all the excitement!

The last order of business at their house on Christmas Eve is for Shawn and the kids to make sugar cookies for Santa. The design varies and this year they made Santa's initials.
