Christmas Eve 2017

We celebrated Christmas Eve at Grandma and Grandpa Hansen's house with all the aunts and uncles and cousins. Even Popcorn Grandma was there. We had lots of fun and lots of good food!

Clara and Dad make the same face while having their picture taken. Aunt Wendy gave Clara some story books and a Storm Pooper shirt.

Clara and Mom in our party attire. Her pajamas were hard to find the day before Christmas Eve. With the headband you'd never know they were the boy pj's. 

Grandpa Hansen put together a nice progr'm (pronounced without the A to be like Grandpa Choo Choo and Uncle Jimmy). The kids did their special parts while he read a story and we learned how there would be no Christmas without Easter.

The kids wrote their own play called Jack's Ear. It was wonderful! They wrote a script and put together their costumes.

Even Henrik couldn't resist and played along. 

All the grandkids (except Liza) came ready to party with Grandma.

Last year we had a picture together and Cody made us do it again this year. Jimmy was very touchy this year and gave all the sisters a hug and a kiss.

I'm grateful that my mom works hard to help us keep our traditions going. It's really nice to be able to be together and have fun. We're lucky and blessed to all be friends.
