This year we were so blessed to be able to share our Christmas Eve traditions with Uncle Logan and Aunt Becca. Grandma and Grandpa Black bought the girls' Christmas Eve pajamas this year (which are adorable) and then Cory bought both his and mine. After we were snuggled up in our pajamas and blankets, Cory read our traditional Christmas Eve story.."That Thine Alms May Be in Secret". Over the last 12 years that I have heard this story on Christmas Eve, I have not once been able to do it without sobbing my eyes out. The funny thing is that neither has Cory, and he has heard it every year since he was a little boy. Then, Uncle Logan read our next Christmas Eve story, "The Polar Express". Although he doesn't quite have the animation in his reading as Cory does, he still did a great job. :) Then I made hot chocolate as we turned the lights off, the fire on, and all watched Polar Express (the girls all fall asleep to this movie every single year...it's perfect). Then Cory, Logan, Becca, and I stayed up laughing, talking, and wrapping presents. It was perfect.
