X-mas eve night

We spend every Christmas Eve with my Mom, sister and BIL. They come to my house late in the afternoon and leave at about the boys bed time. Once we read books, leave cookies and carrots for Santa and the reindeer, and get the boys to bed, Doug and I exchange gifts by the tree. We've learned that in order to actually look at and appreciate our gifts we have to do it alone. It's a great tradition and I really look forward to that time alone with my hubby!
Of course, the next chore is getting the tree ready for the boys. This was our tree this year :) It was a beautiful one. Once I get all of the presents ready I can barely contain myself...it's so hard not to run upstairs and wake the boys. Christmas is truly magical!!

One more layout to share with you tomorrow :)
