Christmas Eve

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! We had a great time celebrating our Savior’s birth! Tyler and Kalen are at such great ages where it really makes Christmas special. I’ve got lots of pictures so I am going to take a couple posts to recap everything Smile

Christmas Eve we went to Mama Jo and Papa Bill’s house (Angie’s parents) to celebrate Jordan’s birthday and Christmas with them.


Jordan turned 18 this year! Hard to believe!


Jordan works at Baskin Robbins and made his own birthday cake this year! It was GREAT!! (I think I am going to have him make Tyler’s)


Then the kids got to open a present.


Then we went to church for the special Christmas Eve Service. We LOVE this and are so excited that we can have this tradition. All the children are invited on the stage with our Pastor while he reads the Christmas story. Tyler and Kalen went up all by themselves this year. They were right up next to Brother Jimmy! Smile If you look close you can see Kalen, I think she it trying to attack someone with her sparkle shoe. Hehe.


I am so glad our friend Shannon got this picture of us! It is the only one with me this Christmas!


Then we delivered a blessing basket to one of the local fire stations and thanked them for their service to us especially during the holiday season. Then it was home to open one present.


This one present is always something that Mommy picks out and is always the same thing every year.


New Christmas pajamas.


This year I also gave them the The Grinch Who Stole Christmas book and a Grinch doll for Kalen. Then we cuddled up and watched the “old” Grinch and went to bed!
