Christmas Eve

After a relaxing day, we were all ready for the Christmas Eve Service at our church.  I love starting Christmas worshiping with my family to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas.

These 4 are almost always together while at church

Silent Night in candlelight is everyone's favorite

What Will thought about taking a few more pictures after we got home

After church and dinner, we let the kids open one present each.  Since they began shopping for each other and for us at the holiday shop at school, they have decided that those should be the gifts we should open.  I love their excitement to give the gifts they picked out especially for each family member.

Will bought Isabel a stuffed owl that she just loved

Isabel bought Will a bag full of goodies; erasers, sticky men that climb down the walls, a notebook, squishy frogs and a bookmark.  He loved it all!

Isabel bought her daddy a flashlight key-chain and a world's best dad coaster

Will bought me a "coolest mom" snowman ornament

Then it was time to get ready for Santa and go to bed!  Isabel and Will picked out cookies for Santa and put it with the notes they had written him earlier that day.  After throwing food for the reindeer in the front yard it was time to sleep and dream about what Santa would bring..
