Christmas Eve

Most christian families celebrate Christmas Eve with some variation of the Christmas story and telling the birth of Jesus Christ. The Jensen's somehow ended up running around in the snow Christmas eve in their swimsuits instead!! Okay let me qualify, two of the Jensen's, Landon and Dayton ran around in the snow in their swimsuits...I don't know why and I've stopped asking, but after they were frozen they wanted a picture so here it is! Goofballs!
I told them to lay in the snow and I'll take a picture of them, but they were a bit chicken, here is the sort of laying in the snow picture!

Like many families we have a tradition of opening one present on Christmas Eve which is always a big surprise of pajama's. However, unlike most families, we apparently took the picture before the Christmas pajama's were on........uhhh hmmm.

The telling of the Christmas story and the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ did make it's appearance at the end of the evening before we tucked the little ones into bed. We are grateful for the Savior Jesus Christ and grateful that we have the gospel in our home, even if it is a crazy home. After the little ones were in bed dreaming of sugar plums and that other stuff kids dream about at Christmas time, mom and dad waited for Santa while watching the wonderful seasonal movie Ironman. Oh the Magic of Christmas!
