Christmas Eve 2017

Christmas Eve fell on a Sunday this year, which was just about perfect. We had a slow morning, and then went with Dave's parents to church for the Sacrament Meeting Christmas program. There was lots of good music and the kids got to see Papa sing in the choir. One hour church is also a great thing when you have small kids. That afternoon we played, and ate way too much food, before getting in jammies and preparing for Santa to come. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

We took some pictures before church that only sort of worked out. At least we tried. 

After church Sophie and I worked on a gingerbread house together. I did the frosting and she placed the candies. And ate lots of them too :)

Her plate for Santa included cookies, chocolate muffin, root beer (since that's what Santa said he wanted), and carrots for the reindeer. 

Davey was very intersted in the carrots and decided to sample a few. Later he spit out a big pile of mushed orange on the kitchen floor.

Sophie wrote a note requesting that Santa leave her stocking by her bed so she could look at it after waking up. Davey also wanted to leave a note, although I'm not sure what it said...

It sounds like a great Christmas Eve. It's always fun to read about your fun kids and exciting adventures. Good luck with the new baby.
