Meet Gracie and Luke, our six-year-old twins!
We waited for them forever and can't remember life without them.

Christmas Eve with the Uribes II

We usually spend Christmas Eve with Grandma and Grandpa, waiting up until midnight to open presents. This year, they are off to Mexico, so we went to our Auntie Ten-Ten and Uncle Bear's house to eat yummy food, tear the house apart, have hot chocolate, and walk around to see the Christmas lights. Auntie Ten-Ten and Uncle Bear live in an area famous for their Christmas lights so it was especially fun.

Gracie and Luke ran all around the house with their Cousin Nate and wore themselves out. After we all had dinner, I made hot chocolate and we got ready to go outside. We were expecting rain, but it hadn't arrived yet. We decided it was safe to go out to see the lights.

Auntie Ten-Ten decided to get all of the cousins together for a Christmas Eve photo! And look! She got everyone facing the camera! This is an amazing feat, I assure you.

Our favorite house was the one with the Nativity scene designed with Cabbage Patch Dolls. There must have been about 50 of them dressed as angels, Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus. It was beautiful! As we approached the end of our trek through the neighborhood, it started to sprinkle so we headed back to Auntie Ten-Ten and Uncle Bear's house.

We had so much fun! We hope that we can do something like this again next year. Although, we may have to add caroling to the list of activities. Aunt Bec is determined to take Uncle Mike out and show him that people really do carol (not just in the movies).
