Our family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve. We would have dinner then open gifts at midnight. But through the years, and as our family got bigger, we had to started opening gifts earlier...for the kids' sake. It's really insane how many gifts we have under the tree every year! Our family spoils one another. This year Ashlyn got the most gifts by far! Aric and I are really grateful for the love that surrounds us. We were also extra blessed this year having Tony's parents join in our celebration. =D
