Family Joy - Christmas Eve Activities

The ice storm from last night tapered into continuous rain this morning and finally moved to the east, leaving us with a skating rink for a driveway, and still no Grandma.

Scott's mother, Fay, who has spent Christmas with us over the past 6 years ran into major travel delays - she spent last night in Detroit and was scheduled to arrive this morning. But, alas, more flight cancellations and flight issues has resulted in more delays and another night in Detroit. Hopefully, she'll arrive tomorrow morning - things look clear now on the weather front.

We seem to be in a funk with our Christmas activities without Grandma, but the kids still decorated the gingerbread house:

Erica concentrates as she adds a silver bead to the top of her snowman:


And adds gumdrops to the rooftop:


While Erica was amenable to my picture taking, Brian wasn't as nice and copped an attitude every time I brought up the camera. I captured his attitude anyways:


There's still a scowl on his face, even though it is a picture of his hands:


Brian's completed side:


Another Christmas Eve activity is the opening of one selected gift. I managed to "bribe" a nice picture out of the kids just prior to the big present reveal:


Which was Mario Kart for the Wii:


And all three kids are playing....

The gingerbread houses look fabulous! Merry Christmas, Shirley and family. I hope the best gift you get is grandma arriving! The weather has indeed been terrible this season. Enjoy your day :)
