Christmas Eve 2011

Christmas Eve is always so exciting! There is nothing like the anticipation of the day that is to come!! I love all of the last minute events to prepare for the big day!! …And, this year was no different. …

The majority of the day was spent at home. Cooking…wrapping…baking. Then, late afternoon, we got dressed up to head to our church’s Christmas Eve service. The car ride there (in our new Swaggon) was one that I won’t soon forget! My boys were so very sweet and held hands most of the way! Oh how I love them. Christmas 2011 New Years 2012 002
The service was beautiful…and chaotic with two anxious and busy boys in tow. I always love the candlelight part…and, this time, Quinn got to hold his own. Don’t worry…the wax came out of my cute new red pants! :)

After the service, we came home to put on new jammies and dine on yummy pot roast. Then, it was off to look at Christmas lights in our jammies…our favorite tradition! Christmas 2011 New Years 2012 031Slickpaw's Christmas 2011 088Slickpaw's Christmas 2011 095Slickpaw's Christmas 2011 100

In years past, we have been super disappointed that no coffee shops were open to get some drive-through coffee. This year, we had our own barista! Perfectly yum! Christmas 2011 New Years 2012 070

And, we even had a fire to keep us warm in the Swaggon! :) Christmas 2011 New Years 2012 075
When we came home, we decorated some cookies for Santa and hurried to get in bed! We were all so excited for the morning to come!
