Christmas Recap #1

I’m sure this is going to take a couple of posts so here is part 1.

We went to the Christmas Eve service at church and it was wonderful! So much more than we expected. It was a short service with a couple songs and then the pastor invited the kids on stage to read the Christmas Story.

And then the kids sang a couple of carols for us.

And that was it. Short, but sweet! We said Merry Christmas to a few of our friends

and headed home.

I had a few snacks prepared for us to eat. Mushroom caps, Chicken Nacho dip, and Cocktail Shrimp. YUM!

Kalen had to show off her Christmas Eve outfit! Good thing I got these pictures, she spit up and we had to change her later.

Then keeping with tradition we let the kids open one present before bed.
