Well, better late then never! Christmas Eve is a very fun, but busy day for us. We start out with brunch at my parents. Everyone comes and we enjoy good, food, company and my favorite Mimosas!
Following brunch we all played Headbandz which was pretty entertaining.
My parents with the three boys.
After a great morning we headed home to relax a bit before church and dinner. The kids sprinkled their Reindeer food on the lawn.
Before we knew it, we needed to get dressed and head to church. The kids sing on stage every Christmas Eve. You can see Jax is right up front.
And my shy guy in the back.
It was a great service, and poor Jax was so tired he passed out cold for the second half of it.
From church we headed to Mike’s Mom’s house for Christmas Eve dinner.
We had a great time with everyone and the kids were of course super excited they got to open a few presents.
After a great family evening it was time to head home and get ready for Santa’s arrival! The boys hung their stockings.
Set out the cookies, chocolate milk, and carrots for Santa and his reindeer.
Posed in a few more pictures by the tree and then it was finally time for them to head to bed!
In some ways I enjoy Christmas Eve more then Christmas Day. I love that we get to spend quality time with both sides of our family, there isn’t the stress and rush of it actually being Christmas, and the excitement and anticipation is so very thrilling. The special time with the boys is going by so quickly!! I try to enjoy everyone minute, which is why there are less pictures and posts as I am doing my best to live in the moment rather then always documenting it.
I will get the Christmas Post up by the end of the week!
