Christmas Eve services are always some of my favorite. There is just something special about starting Christmas at church singing songs about Jesus in candlelight. This year Nana, Grams, and my uncle Brad came to church with us.
Will just had to help Josh pass out bulletins to everyone at church
Sweet kids after the service
(unfortunately it was about 75 degrees that night but Isabel really wanted to wear her new sweater dress anyway. Good thing the AC was on!)
I love my family
After church we all went back to our house and Matt, Lauren, and the girls joined us. This year I decided a chick-fil-a nugget tray would be the easiest and less stressful dinner option. Someone else did the cooking and I didn't have to fight with my kids to eat it! Perfect! We all had a great night just being together.
After everyone left we let Isabel and Will open their presents to each other and then Josh and I both got to open a gift from one of the kids. These are always my favorite presents!
Will was so excited about this Titans helmet he picked out for Josh
Will bought Isabel a beautiful bracelet
Isabel knows her brother well and bought him a ball popper gun!
Time to get ready for Santa's visit! First step was to throw out food for the reindeer
They set out milk and cookies and then quickly headed to bed!
