Pre-Christmas celebration

since we were going to be in Florida for Christmas we had an early christmas eve and christmas here in TN with Dave's parents.
"christmas eve" we let the kids stay up a little later than usual and we made yummy chocolate covered pretzels for gifts for our family and friends. the kids did great. they are getting so big!.
then dave and i stayed up way to late wrapping all out gifts for the kids. i hadn't wrapped anything yet and we wanted to give them the gifts from us before we headed to Fl.
grandma kay and grandpa george came over in the morning and watched the kids open their gifts.
the girls got horses of course, and garret got some bey blades
and jori LOVED reading her book next to grandpa.

i tried out this great pinterest recipe. egg casserole in the crock pot! it was yummy! try it out.

Love the chocolate dipped pretzels and your tree is gorgeous...I'm sure the kids loved walking out and seeing it with all your wrapped presents. Seems to be a tradition in our house to stay up late the night before Christmas and wrap, wrap, wrap. Even my Mom and Dad did it! Looks like the gifts were all a hit too.
