December 24th, Christmas Eve, we once again had our traditional formal appetizer & special foods dinner, prepared by all ten of us Bontrager children.
Once again it was a very fun time of working together in the kitchen, decorating the table, & getting ready for our special night.
After our delicious dinner,  all twelve of us went out into the snowy night and played track tag in the fresh snow. 
(super fun!!)
Following that we came inside, changed into pj’s, & watched one of our family favorites, Courageous.
And after that…was another Christmas Eve tradition: sleeping on the living room floor.
Thus ended a most enjoyable family day…=)
I’m so grateful for my big happy family!


christmas eve, family, food
