We were at home for Christmas this year. We were both working at the Christmas Eve services at our church. Here is the only shot we got of our kids in their Christmas Eve outfits.
After church we changed into our PJs and went to look at Christmas lights.
We drove to this one particular house that had a twelve minute light show coordinated with music over the radio. The picture doesn’t do it justice. The kids were in awe.
Then we came home and got ready for bed
We put out some cookies and milk for Santa
and some reindeer food for his helpers. Henry didn’t really know what we were doing but he could tell something exciting was going on.
The next morning we came out and opened presents!
Henry found some goldfish in his stocking. He went straight to the kitchen to get a bowl and then he was happy. Not much interest in opening other presents.
Nathan got a new bike
He also got some pennants for all of the SEC schools. He lays in his bed at night with a flashlight memorizing all the team names.
Jennifer and Hannah got some matching aprons
Hannah got a journal.
She also got a balance beam. She and Nathan helped Henry walk across it.
Nathan loved his Cleveland Browns uniform set.
After presents we had our coffee/birthday cake for Jesus. We are so blessed and, once again, had a really great Christmas at home with our kidddos.
