Shopping and Christmas Eve

One of the fun things I did this Christmas season was take each girl shopping so they could by each other presents. It was fun finding out what each kid wanted to give their sisters. Samantha got each girl a Wii games. Sydney got Courtney 2 sets of "Bob" books and Samantha a fun coloring peace sign. Courtney got Sydney a skateboard Plus she got Samantha a barbie fashion maker book. We let them open their gifts to each other on Christmas eve so they could have something to play with. We usually go out to my Uncle Tom and aunt Cindy's for Christmas Eve but this year they were sick. So we decided to have a seafood dinner. We sent my dad to Costco to get the largest shrimp he could find and scallops. The shrimp were ginormous! Jon made a really yummy Alfredo type sauce for the noodles and a yummy Cesar salad. After dinner we watched National Lampoons Christmas Vacation which we figured out after the fact that it probably wasn't the best to watch with the kids mane in a few more years. My dad and I were going to go to the candle light service but we decided at the last minute not to.
