Christmas Eve 2013:

We have been so busy this week and have loved every minute of it! 
I can't believe Christmas is over though...

My brother-in-law arrived on Christmas Eve, and 
Christmas Eve started like every day this season...

Finding Jingle...

Eating Breakfast, then doing our Advent Calendar...

(Charli absolutely loved her advent calendar. And I can't tell you how many times during the day I had to go around and find all of the people and put them back in their place) ;)

Then that afternoon,
 We baked some bread and some sugar cookies...

We made some homemade fudge for our neighbors...

And then passed out that fudge...

Then that evening
We headed to Christmas Eve service...


 Had an amazing roast for Christmas Eve dinner.
Opened up our 1 present on Christmas Eve (Christmas Pajamas!), this is a 3rd generation family tradition we do in our family and it is one of my favorite traditions.

Charli wrote a letter to Santa...

We put out the milk and cookies...


Read The Night Before Christmas...



Then had one little girl nestled and snug in her bed
And I am sure visions of sugar-plums danced in her head! 


Then us all in our PJ's
Spiked eggnogs to drink
Not a creature was stirring
Not a puppy awake

The stockings were hung
The milk and cookies were out
Our home sure was ready
For St. Nick to come around!
