Houses in order: Katie S., Katie G., Andrew, mine, & Landon's.

Our Christmas Eve is the biggest day of the month for my family.  We start off the night with a traditional Norwegian dinner- lefse, Swedish meatballs, and lutefisk... if we're lucky. We then find ourselves playing competitive holiday trivia games, this year was Family Feud Christmas... the girls won this year, woot woot! After lots of laughs we start on our gingerbread houses and two hours later we open up our christmas pajamas.  We also added in a new tradition to our Christmas Eve with cheese! Landon is a cheese-aholic so we incorporated his tradition into ours.  We end the night with grapes, salami, and lots of cheese and we couldn't be more happy.
This year we didn't realize how late it was and ended out Christmas Eve at 2 in the morning! It was so much fun and really brings the holidays to life.  I'm so grateful for my family to live close and can't wait for a white Canadian Christmas next year!
