We had a fabulous Christmas! We spent time celebrating Jesus' birth with those we love. Christmas Eve and Christmas morning were so much fun with the kids at this age!
|We went to the Methodist Church's 5:00 candlelight service. Seth's mom joined us. To me, Silent Night with a room full of lifted up, lit candles is a lovely way to spend Christmas Eve.|

We got home around 6:30 and fed the kids dinner. We made our cookies for Santa (slice-and-bake white chocolate macadamia nut).
After sprinkling the reindeer food on the lawn and reading the Christmas story, we tucked the kids in bed. They wanted to have a sleepover (what else is new???) so they slept together in James' room. They went out in record time, knowing Santa wouldn't come until they were asleep.
|All James asked for was a "white garbage truck". This is what Santa delivered and James absolutely loved it!|
|Adelyn was all over the board on her wish list. One item that kept popping up was the hugglepod. She found it in a catalog and Santa brought it! It's pretty cool- it has a thick cushion on the bottom and hugs you as you sit and read books.|
|Grandma and Grandpa stopped by to see us Christmas morning!|
|Guess what??!! We are getting a new dog!! Yippee! My gift to Seth was dog accessories and a poem revealing that our family will pick out a new dog. Our house is just not the same without one.|
|Next, we ate waffles and sang Happy Birthday Jesus!|
Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas!
