Christmas Eve

We had a busy, fun-filled Christmas weekend in Pittsburgh! The weekend started off on Friday with a 70th birthday celebration for Dave's mom (no pictures, unfortunately!). On Saturday (Christmas Eve), Dave and I had tickets to the Steeler game. When we walked in, we were handed a scratch-off ticket with the chance to win a prize. I scratched mine off and saw that we had won 2 pre-game field passes! Since it was only 30 minutes before the game, we rushed over to the prize tent and they immediately escorted us down to the field where we got to hang out until kickoff. What a great experience!
On the field!
Polamalu before he let his hair down.
Brett Kiesel.  Dave was cursing the fact that he didn't wear his Kiesel jersey, because he ended up handing his warmup gloves to a guy standing right near us who was wearing his jersey!
We got to stand in the Terrible Towel lineup as the players ran onto the field.  Do you recognize that guy waving the Terrible Towel about 20 feet from us?  It's Buzz Aldrin!

Back at Dave's parent's house, Alyse made friends with Aunt Maria.

Before bed, the kids posed for a Christmas Eve photo by the tree.

And then they were treated to a few Christmas Eve presents!
