So Christmas Eve and Day was all about the family! I got dressed up for Christmas Eve mass with my parents and stayed for dinner and to bake cupcakes. Then the next day, everyone came over dressed in ugly sweaters and it was amazing! I think I want the cousins to choose a theme every year for Christmas from now on. It was just so much fun! We ate a lot, sang Christmas carols, took plenty of pictures and exchanged gifts. My youngest cousin got me for the third (!) time which made us both laugh. Everyone was so happy with their presents. Especially me! (One of his many gifts included the new box set of The Mortal Instruments!)
Onto the pictures!
