Christmas Eve

Yesterday I finished some last minute shopping and we got to see Santa downtown. This picture was the best of four. At least their not crying.

Tonight we celebrated Christmas Eve at my parents, as we do every year. The kids were all about it. Maxwell was so excited he could hardly talk (seriously, his sentences were just a string of happy words that didn't really make sense). Thanks for a special night Mom and Dad. We missed you David!

The kids watched the Polar Express on the hour drive home. It was soon time for bed and Maxwell cried and cried- he's still not liking his room at night :( I didn't have as much patience as his Daddy did. I knew we still had so much to do but Mike just sat with him and calmed him down- which quickly turned into this.



With both kids tucked in their beds, I did this...


Check out this cool train that was Mike's from when he was a boy! He pulled it out of storage today and got parts to make it work. It goes round and round the tree...


Now Mike's in the cold garage putting together this...the pink one's next...

And I'm about to do this zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Merry Christmas to you and your families. For those as blessed as we are to wake up with kids tomorrow, enjoy! This is the most magical December I've ever had. Now, excuse me as I go polish off Santa's cake and milk.

We had such a special Christmas Eve with all of you....to say Maxwell was excited and overcome with non-stop silliness is being conservative .... What fun we all had ! Yes, David we really missed you,Monday we get to celebrate again with you this time.
Looking forward to hearing all about Christmas morning with your whole gang there.
