Christmas Eve started with the service at church followed by looking at lights. This tradition is 15 years strong now! We decided to go to Hidden Springs for lights this year. The lights weren't that great but the houses...if I can't live on the east coast then I should at least be able to live here. The mercantile, the service station, the post office, the houses. I can't stand it! Rob had to wipe up a puddle of drool by the time we left. After our tour we went back to Rodger and Terry's for food. Lots and lots of food.
Before we left Steph pulled up the Santa tracker so the kids could see how close he was. They were mesmerized and so excited. We've never pushed Santa a whole lot at our house but watching that made even me want to believe.
Emily wanted to leave cookies and milk out for Santa so we let her. Rob needed a bedtime snack anyway.
Taylor and Emily wanted to sleep together upstairs. She fell fast asleep.
Taylor not so much. It was after midnight before he was out.
Christmas morning. Yes we took another picture but Emily's eyes were closed in that one too. We had fun being together opening our presents and spending time together. We were spoiled with lots of things but we remember the real reason for celebrating.
Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
