CHRISTMAS EVE WITH THE CHECKETTS
This was the first year since 2000 that all of the checketts were together! It was such a great dinner to have everyone there and sharing fun stories about the year and about their childhood.
Here is the GORGEOUS christmas tree up here at the cabin! It brings such a great mood up here.
Here nate and I are in our christmas PJ's that we get every christmas eve. We are holding up the christmas PJ's that they bought for baby gabe when he comes. HOW CUTE!
It is a tradition with Nate's family that we all get assigned our parts in the nativity scene and we take a couple of minutes to go and get our "costumes" with whatever we can find up here at the cabin. Then we come out to the barn singing "oh little town of bethlehem". It is so much fun to see the costumes and also to say the script and sing some christmas songs. It is a great christmas eve tradition! (try to guess by their costumes who played what part.....animals are included in the script!)
After the nativity scene we really liven it up and push the ping pong tables aside and dance to some fun christmas music! They got in this kick where they all tried to do an "eagle" and to see who does it the best.....I am going to be a little biased and say that the next picture is the best!
Here is nate! I never even knew he had it in him! AMAZING!
Here is abby tackling connor during the dancing!
Even though I was sitting on the sidelines trying to avoid having a christmas baby, he was still joining in the fun dancing inside my belly.
Here are the boys in their christmas PJ's. This year they had a theme so they picked out their favorite soccer "kit" or jersey and some matching pants. Look at their GQ!
Here are the girls lookin' all stylish.
