Christmas Eve with the Carey Gang . . .

Everyone (except Chad, who will be home in 6 1/2 weeks!)
gathered at our home for Christmas Eve dinner, dessert, and presents!
Evalie . . .
Evalie and Hannah in their matching aprons -

Tanner and Isaac . . .
Dillon . . .
Evan Thomas, waiting in anticipation so patiently -
Tom-Tom LOVES shoes. Any kind - flip-flops, crocs, sport, boots. Especially boots.
So that's why I was looking forward to giving him these way-cool Fireman boots.
But - there is something to be said about what Order you give them their gifts.
He opened those puzzles, and didn't have eyes for anything else.
I guess puzzles are his new favorite thing!Cutie pie Hannah at the pianna . . . hee hee
4 month-old Brooke with her mommy . . .
Even Ninja gets a gift!
I got signed copy of this book . . . my son Jake waited outside in temperatures that were in the teens for 6 hours to get this for me
(of course Sarah came to Coeur d'Alene on her book tour - she was born in north Idaho)
. . . Best Gift Ever!
The next day, Kayla bought this book for Mark. I guess we won't be fighting over who gets to read it first!

Looks like a wonderful time! My girls were looking at this entry with me and they both LOVED the aprons. So cute!

I love family get-togethers. And coolness on the book. THere was no way I was going to wait in a line (I'm not a big Sarah fan but wouldn't do that for anyone) but makes the gift extra special knowing that he did that for you.

Looks so fun and dounright cozy.

I can't wait for your review of her book and what a great son to do what it took to get it for you!

And 6 1/2 months is going to cruise by, I promise!!
