Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

How was your Christmas?
Ours was wonderful. 
 We are still enjoying those magic-filled, believing years.
I love working hard to build tradition and memories for my kiddos.  I want them to look back on childhood Christmases and remember family, love and magic.

We attended our church's Christmas Eve service.  It was beautiful and moving and for once, the kiddos were perfectly behaved! (it does get better!)
We read the Christmas story from the Bible and we finished up our Book Advent.
I love the letter that B boy left for Santa.  He is so funny! It's says- To St. Nic and his randeer
I love Christmas morning.  I always set my alarm so that I am up and ready when the kids get up and first see the tree and gifts.
I LOVED his expressions this year.  He cracks me up all the time!
I had so many photos, but I thought I would share a "few" highlights from the morning.
C Girl was so happy that she got the journal she wanted!
They LOVED their big Santa gifts
This year was amazing for me. The kids both shopped with Daddy and bought me very thoughtful gifts.  It is truly a treasure to receive gifts from your children.
Tim's gifts to me were so, so good. I love that man.
This boy is so happy that he got a notebook with "no lines in it." He hates drawing on notebook paper!
Daddy had a really good morning too! He loved his gifts!
A great part about the day was getting to stay in our Pj's ALL day and play with our new stuff!
And we got to eat yummy food!
