Christmas Eve 09

On Christmas Eve, Bob and I went shopping for a few last minute gifts. We stopped at In and Out for lunch between the stores. (We love In and Out and wish we could eat there every day. Bob only eats the burgers and fries animal style.)

We met up with my family at the mall to see Invictus. It started out a little slow, but it had a really good story and we enjoyed it.
After the movie we went to Grandma and Grandpa Hales house for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner. We always have fried oysters and clam chowder. This was Bob's first time having an oyster. He said it was good, but he didn't go back for seconds so we all know what that means.

Bob and I gave Grandpa Hales a snuggie. (You all know how much I love mine. It was a knock off of the original, but it felt just as nice.) Grandpa said he loved it, and didn't take it off for an hour or so. Some say he looked like the Grinch.
This year we stayed until 10:00 playing games as a family. It was a lot of fun, we haven't done it in the past.

We came home and talked about the true meaning of Christmas. We then opened our Christmas Eve PJ's and then played Farkle until midnight.
