Christmas Eve traditions

On Christmas Eve, we have our family night. Just the 4 of us and no one else. We have a nice dinner and chat and just make a point of enjoying ourselves. After dinner, Alyssa and Nathan get to open a small present from mom and dad because it's so hard to wait for Santa sometimes. We then get into our PJ's and pick a Christmas movie to watch. Of course popcorn and hot chocolate for all.  What will we watch tonight... Maybe the grinch (Cartoon version)or a Charlie Brown Christmas for the kids and then Sean and I will settle and watch Scrooged after the kids go to bed. Sit with our hot drinks, by our warm fire in the glow on the Christmas tree and enjoy a bit of a date night.
Truthfully, we are both more excited than the kids about tomorrow, because watching them on Christmas morning is the best gift we have.

Merry Christmas to all of you!
