Despite terrible weather on Christmas Eve, we managed to make it the block and a half to St. Stephens where my immediate family and most of my extended family were attending the vigil mass. It was absolutely wild with the three babies cutting up and drawing attention from all corners of the church. It is almost impossible for James to make it through mass without causing some kind of ruckus so I was relieved when he was relatively quiet and was happy just to be walked around to check out the sights.
After mass we headed to GGs for Christmas Eve dinner with everyone. It was the perfect opportunity to get a picture of all of the babies together but this was as close as I could get. I suppose three out of five is not too bad considering.

Casey and James, hanging out - this one cracks me up because James looks like a doll stuffed into that outfit like a sausage:

The pjs don't make it to Christmas morning so all of my effort for kids in matching pjs on Christmas morning was for naught. More on that later...
