Our family after the service. My favorite part of Christmas that brings everything into perspective is singing "Silent Night" by candlelight. We had the girls with us during the song for the end of the service. Addie loved singing along and Kate was fascinated by the candles. It is a perfect way to celebrate the Christ child.
Right after the service we went to Jeremy's Aunt Patti's house. She loves children and is always planning fun things for them. She had all of the kids sit down and talked to them about Santa coming that night.
And within minutes Santa (Jeremy's cousin Brad this year...hee hee) made an appearance and had a small gift for each child. Love this picture.
Santa also brought some presents for some of the adults, although some of them are inappropriate to post on the blog thanks to Jenny and Jen. Ha!
We then came home, read books, put cookies, milk & carrots out and put the kids to bed so Santa to could come. And then mom and dad stayed up late getting things ready for Christmas morning/day.
