Christmas Eve 2012

Christmas Eve day we hung around the house doing last minute things for the big day. The girls were beside themselves with anticipation. Alex was doing some last minute assembly for Christmas morning so while Gemma napped I had to get Lily out of the house for a while. I decided to take us for a girls treat. Lily's first pedicure.
She was in heaven. She loved every minute and can't stop talking about it. She got sparkly red toes with snow flakes on the big toes. She has showed everyone her toes since. I think this is going to become a tradition from now on as well.
They wanted to get their dresses on first thing in the morning. We managed to hold them off until after Gemma's nap. 
Here we are, all ready to go to church, let's get the show on the road already.
Gemma doing a shout out to Jesus. He is the reason for the season!
We had our "annual" Christmas eve cocktail party after church. We decided it is our favorite party of the year. Everyone brings something to share and we make a fancy cocktail. This year it was jingle juice. We used up an entire bottle of Captain Morgan, half a bottle of Grand Marnier, a fair bit of peach schnaaps and a ton of fresh squeezed juices. It was delightful!! I think it is going to have to make an appearance next year.
You will have to trust me that we all had fun at the party because this is the only photo we took!
