'Tis the Season, part 6 - Tree 3

We play "dirt santa" for our Christmas Eve Gifts.
Check out my sister's face when she saw the armadillo we brought.
GS gets spoiled by Grammie
The little ones tear into their gifts first.
The third tree with my family is always fun. We have a tradition where we greet each other with the words "Christmas Eve Gift", we eat, visit, and play Dirty Santa. When playing Dirty Santa everyone always tries to avoid getting the blue bowl - although sometimes people fight to get that ugly little thing.
