I love Christmas Eve as much as Christmas day. We go to my Mom and Dad's for a party every year. We eat prime rib(yum!), and play games. It is alot of fun, our kids love it. Barry actually didn't have to go to work that night. I think it has been 4 years since he has been home with us on Christmas eve. Christmas morning seemed pretty early after such a long night, but we survived. All of the kids got what they asked for. We got a Wii, I don't think that it has been turned off much since we got it. Tyler got guitar hero, we have had alot of fun with it (it is addicting to say the least).
