Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is always such an exciting day, filled with hope and wonder of what is to come the following morning. Our girls are too young to understand exactly what comes Christmas morning, but Christmas Eve is still a fun time of celebration in our house!

The girls went down for their naps early to make sure they were well-rested for the Christmas Eve church service. We went to the service at Lila's preschool church since it was at a good time and close by.  It was a really special candlelight service. Lila didn't understand why her friends weren't there at school with her, but I think she had fun playing with Alli in the nursery.

After church, we went home and got the spaghetti for dinner ready. We all scarfed down our food since we were starving, changed into our Christmas jammies, and the girls opened up the presents from mom and dad.  We let the girls play with their new toys for a while before all heading to bed to prepare for Santa to come.

I love my girls!

Once the girls were in their beds, Santa began putting all of the toys out for the girls. Josh and I also exchanged presents to each other. He got me a pink tazer gun, a huge pink umbrella (Josh loves practical gifts), and a cute blue and orange Nike workout outfit. I got him some Polo shirts and a boudoir photo shoot :). Santa finished around 9:30, so we had the rest of the night to relax, drink champagne, and watch movies. It was a great Christmas Eve!
