Christmas Eve 2010

Christmas Eve was wonderful! We attended our church's 4:00 candlelight service and it was fabulous. It was my first time back at church since Matthew was born, and I so enjoyed worship and listening to a great message about the TRUE reason for this season. It was also Matthew's first time at church and he did really well...slept through the whole thing (which I find just crazy...a creaky wood floor will wake him up at home but a live band playing loud music in his ear won't...hummmm) After church, we went over to my in-laws' house for a yummy supper (my mom, brother, aunt and Nannie met us there after the candlelight service at their church). We combine holidays since both of our families live in Dallas. It's so nice to have everyone together! After dinner and visiting with family, we headed back to our house to open our annual Christmas Eve present...Christmas jammies!
Matthew, of course, had to "open" his "Baby's First Christmas" pajamas :-)
After the kiddos were all cozy in their pjs, we piled into Caroline's bed to listen to Matt read the Christmas Story from Luke (Caroline really started to understand the Christmas Story more this year...it was fun talking about it a lot and watching her act it out with her Little People nativity set all month!)
Then it was off to bed so Santa could come visit. Caroline was SO excited and giddy we were scared she wouldn't be able to sleep. But she slept great, and I even had to wake her up the next morning (I couldn't help it, I was so excited :-) Stay tuned for Christmas Day 2010!!
