Christmas Day

Wade always wants to spend Christmas Eve at our house, no matter what, so after the campground, we drove home so we could wake up in our own home on Christmas Day.  The kids do Santa gifts, we exchange family gifts then we get dressed and head to Metairie for Christmas dinner at Wade’s MiMi’s house.  After dinner, we head to my parents’ house to see my family and exchange gifts there.  Its always a very busy day!

Christmas Eve at the Campground

I’ve spoken many times about the tradition my family always had of getting together on Christmas Eve.  That tradition had almost fallen by the wayside for a long time but this past year, we were all able to meet at a campground and revive it.  Almost every single member of our family was there and it was so nice to have all the kids together.  They loved exploring the woods and playing with their cousins.  We had a large campfire, plenty of food and a hilarious show, performed by kids and adults alike.  I took family photos for everyone there and we all had a really great time.
