Christmas Eve

Sorry, I'm going to overdo it with the photos again ... we spent Christmas Eve at home with my parents and brother and we all attended our church's Christmas Eve service together. This was a day filled with excitement for two certain little people in our house .... well, really just one. Carter was pretty oblivious to it all!

Audrey opens a "special" present from Mom-Mom & Pop-Pop ... a Santa that sings Jingle Bells!

... which was played over and over and over again by Carter, who has fallen in love with this Santa! You can see the adoration already.

At some point in the evening, Carter went over to the tree with his cookie and milk, and laid underneath it, looking up at all the lights. It was really cute.

Daddy gives the kids a pony ride. That's my brother Andy in the background.

The kids with my parents. A rare photo where everyone is looking, and looking happy about being in a picture! :)

Audrey & Daddy

Audrey doing "cheers" with Pop-Pop (it is just sparkling grape juice lest you think I am corrupting the morals of a child ....)


After the kids went to bed, Chad and I got all the gifts out and set out the ones from "Santa."
I was excited to see the kids' faces the next morning ...

Part II - "Christmas Day" coming soon ....
