|Cousins on Kevin's side of the family|
Around 4:00, we headed over to my sister's house in Virginia Beach for my side of the family's Christmas Eve. We use to draw a name and buy a present for that particular person, but the past few years we have just bought a gift and do a Chinese exchange (I think that is what it's called!) All of the presents go under the tree and we all draw a number. Once your number is called, you either pick a gift under the tree or you can steal one from someone else. Everyone has different rules on how the game is played. So we came up with house rules. Whoever house we are at gets to make the rules. Kevin and I walked away with a Fire Pit this year! Well, actually it's my dad's since I picked for him since we didn't bring a gift, but we brought it home!

|Mommy and Daddy on Christmas Eve!|
After the gift exchange was done, Kevin and dad took the babies back to mom and dad's house while mom and I stayed to help Ashley and Tommy clean up. Luckily it didn't take too long to clean up! Then we headed to my parents house for the night. For the past few years we have stayed the night at my parents house Christmas Eve and open presents on Christmas morning with them. Once the babies start knowing about Santa Claus, that will change and we will be staying at home on Christmas Eve so they can open presents on Christmas morning at home.
