Clint made his grandmother's recipe for both the macaroni salad and the meatballs. This is a long standing Carothers Christmas Eve tradition. Traditions are comforting, they evoke memories of our childhoods and nothing says "Christmas Eve" to Clint more than Nana's food.
The traditional plate of Christmas cookies. :)
Time to open the gifts! Let's start by bringing out the big guns first, Pap's gifts. Aaron couldn't be happier! The Star Wars Disney Infiniti characters were on the top of his list.
Syd is freaking out! Pap got her exactly what she wanted. How did he know?! :)
Son of a gun...Uncle Randy scored BIG smiles for these characters. In Aaron's world these characters reign supreme.
Uncle Randy is stealing the show. What a show off! :) This LEGO set is exactly what she wanted!
These Snackeez from Aunt Cheryl and Uncle Joe are the coolest things! The ornaments are ADORABLE!! They found the hidden cash too!
Aunt Kathy and Uncle Dan shocked them with all the goodies and monetary gifts. HEY, we are sharing those goodies kids!! Put the peanut butter cups down and no one gets hurt. :)
The morning started with rain showers and the evening ended with showers of BLESSINGS. What an exciting evening it has been!
