Mike & Jill's Christmas 2012

Christmas Eve is usually spent over at Chad's Aunt and Uncle's house with his family.  These last few years we've been taking Victoria with us as she LOVES playing with the girls and they love playing with her too.  ;)  We have a few silly traditions that have been kept up for quite some time and some new ones too!  It's always a good time and we always share some good laughs in our silly fun together.
We started off the night with the tear the paper behind your back game.  It was short lived but funny to see what we came up with.

Everyone in on the fun.

This was a first for Victoria and quite the challenge.  We all did a Christmas tree on the first round.  On the 'freestyle' round, Victoria tore a square.  Looks good to me!  Mark made a mailbox.

And how does one manage to get icing on their ear you ask?...

...Your hands probably look a little like Katie's. Hahaha!  We all got a kick out of that.

These girls really enjoyed their new knitting sets.  Jill updated us with phone pics throughout the break of all the progress they had made!  Both Katie & Michaela caught on QUICK!  Katie knitted a couple of little flowers and things and Michaela had knitted almost an entire scarf in such a short time.
