This year we hosted Christmas Eve in our new house. Earlier in the week my mom helped me make the lasagna and all the aunts helped bring sides, drinks and desserts.
Of all days to skip a nap Tessa chose today. I was very nervous about how she would behave but she did pretty well. She visited with everyone and loved her balloon from Aunt Pam and Tina.
Then we let Tessa open her Christmas Eve present. Our tradition is to open one present which always contains new pajamas and an ornament. Someday when Tessa moves out she will get to take her collection of ornaments with her to decorate her own tree.
It is so nice to have a house big enough to host a holiday and have everyone there to share our big news.
While Tessa was sleeping Santa came!
