We were not able to make it to the Christmas Eve service at our church because Byron had to work that day. Our church has a 4:00 and 5:30pm service, so it was hard to make it. Boo. We spent the evening at my parents' house with around 30 family and friends. We had yummy food. I made the mastacioli and my cheesecake bites. I think my 17 year old cousin said, if I remember correctly, "these are the best freakin' things I've ever tasted." We had lots of other delicious foods as well (pictures below).
We had our gift exchange Christmas morning with my sisters and parents. This year we did a Secret Santa using Elfster.com. It worked very well and I think we'll do it again in the years to come.
Later that day my Aunt, Uncle, and three cousins came over along with one of our friends from church. It was a more intimate Christmas Day than we are used to, but I kind of liked it that way. We made homemade pizzas for dinner, played games....good times.
Here are some pictures and video clips of all the fun:
