Christmas Eve Traditions

Something Old:

We let the boys open one gift on the night of Christmas Eve. They should not have been surprised to find new pajamas to wear. We've been doing this for several years now.

Something New:

Before we sent Brevin and Spencer off to bed, we had a birthday cake for Jesus. I got the idea from the Friend magazine and I happened to have a new frosting recipe that I was dying to try. The boys really enjoyed it and I think it helped to reinforce the reason we celebrate in the first place. I think this "new tradition" is a definite keeper.

(I don't have anything to say about borrowed or blue. I hope that doesn't disappoint anyone too much.)
