Christmas Eve Night

When we got home from East Texas, we dove straight into our Christmas Eve traditions.  :) 

We made cookies for Santa.
We opened our traditional first gift of Christmas - a nativity ornament that Mr. and Mrs. Gatewood gave us several years ago.  It is a wonderful reminder that Jesus is the very best gift of all!
 Christmas PJs
 I mean...  How cute are these boys of mine in their new pajamas and slippers?!?!  They are so precious to me!
 Of course, we had to get pictures with their favorite Christmas present from 2014.  :)

 We had to recreate a picture from Brody's first Christmas.
 Look how much they have grown in just 2 years!  It's true what they say - babies don't keep!  And neither do puppies.  ;)
 We did our last Advent devotional of the year.

 We also opened our last 3 Jesse tree ornaments - we had missed two while we were out of town.
 We read The First Christmas and The Night Before Christmas
 We sprinkled reindeer food in the front yard.
 Then we set out cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for the reindeer.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
