It's a miracle we didn't throw away any presents accidentally with how quickly the wrapping paper and boxes piled up
Lucy LOVES her new mermaid blanket
Audrey & Lucy got matching mermaid blankets and their bitty babies also got matching ones

Lucky for us, the girls slept in on Christmas Eve morning so we didn't even get out of bed until after 7:30 AM. We spent the day again just hanging out at my in-laws and helped get food ready for the big party that evening. We went to Christmas Eve mass at 4:30 PM and when we got back to their house around 6:00 PM, the first guests were just arriving for the family party. Lucy had a blast running around and playing with her cousins and Cece was pretty good for the most part considering she was up about 2 hours past her normal bed time and only took one long nap that day. There were quite a few family members meeting her for the first time so she was being passed around quite a bit. After Santa made his appearance, we quickly packed up, changed the girls into their pjs, and hit the road around 9:00 PM so we could get home before Santa arrived at our house.
Dressed up before Christmas Eve mass (you can't really tell but the girls had matching tutu dresses which were so cute)
Grandkids before the party
Lucy jumped up right away when he came
Telling Santa that she had been a good girl
He even had a present for her
Cece's turn with Santa
And then both girls...
and then a family one since Todd was actually the one dressed up as Santa this year
We finally got home around midnight, got the girls to bed (they both slept the entire drive home), and then filled their stockings and set out presents under the tree; we were finally in bed between 1:30-2:00 AM
All ready for the girls to wake up on Christmas morning
