Twas the Night Before Christmas

I love Christmas Eve with my family. We have always had strong traditions that started when I was a baby and we still do every year. Christmas Eve always starts with going out to a Chinese dinner (since moving to Corvallis it has been at Pings). Then we drive around and look at Christmas lights. After that we go home and gather around and sing Christmas carols and read the Christmas story out of the big family Bible. This year we sang and read around the fire outside. And dad used to read us Twas the Night Before Christmas. Now he gets to read it to his grandkids. I loved the magic of Christmas Eve and Christmas morning as a child and it was so fun to see it through my children's eyes this year!
