The Night Before Christmas

We have always let Todd and Reagan open up something on Christmas Eve. It was a tradition started with my family. We have been giving pajamas every year so they have new pj's to sleep in for Christmas. I stole an idea from a friend on using paint buckets to "wrap" them in. Adam said they have bigger buckets at Home Depot so I think I will use those for next year. I still think it turned out pretty cute.

We also let them open their new pillow & pillowcase that Momo & Papa gave them.

Layton enjoyed himself too!

We ended the evening reading from the Scriptures the beautiful story of Christ's birth. We sang some songs and let Reagan pass out her bells to sing, "Christmas bells are ringing". We tucked the kids into bed and waited for Santa to arrive.
