christmas eve

Christmas Eve my dad took all of the kids to see The Chipmunk movie. Then they swam and swam and swam. Special Thanks to Jason and Cortney...they swam the whole time so we didn't have to be out there with our kids.
I love to see the cousins playing together.

Rob just chillin' in his unitard.

Cali and I spent a lot of time just like this. Babies are a lot of work.

we played a lot of games.

We also had a ton of little crafts and projects for the kids to do. Cali put together teams for a nativity building activity. Here is my team.

The final products. How cute is that?

I made gingerbread men for the kids to decorate for Santa. I was surprised at how much they liked it. Plus they were delicious.

cute Kate.


Then we all sat down and my Mom passed out this years Christmas pj's. The kids thought it was awesome to be all matching.

Our family getting ready for the big night.

Man...get a look of all those kids. It was crazy. We usually have the kids act out the nativity but we didn't have any costumes or time so we did it with some really cute puppets that KaeLynn had. It was cute.

The kids with the puppets.

It is tradition in the Earl family to do a little talent show/christmas program, on Christmas eve. It is one of my favorite things...

Here Cali is singing along with Carolina singing.

Jack did a head stand.

My boys sang Happiest Christmas tree. It was a song Oliver learned in school and taught it to Rob in bed at night. They sang so loud I couldn't believe it. It was awesome. I was so proud.

Henry's talent was his amazing toot abilities.

Afterwards all of the kids went to bed and the sisters wrapped and wrapped presents. I can't believe how long it takes to wrap. Then it was off to bed (after some late night talking with all of the adults)...

I just watched the game here in Sydney. I saw those cute little boys during the interview. I wished I would have known why they were cute, they are Earls, of course they are cute!
