After church, we ran to Wendy's for a quick lunch because Michael and I had to go back to church for our drop-in Communion time. The kids stayed with Grammy and Poppa. After we came back from church, we grabbed a few quick Christmas Eve photos.
Charlie has "Christmas Crazy" eyes in this picture!
Even though they can drive me crazy, I couldn't love these three any more!!
As if we hadn't had enough church for the day, we headed to a Family Christmas service at Lewisville UMC since it is our one chance a year to participate in worship together as a family. The boys drew pictures during the service. Charlie drew this sweet one of the nativity . . .Alex drew a parking lot.
Finally, it was time for their favorite part of the service - the candles!!!
We came home from church and heated up our dinner - a church member had made us a pork butt and then Michael had picked up some sides from Boston Market. We ate dinner and then set out cookies and milk for Santa. Charlie had brought home Magic Reindeer food from school, so we went outside and sprinkled it on the ground so the reindeer would have something when they arrived.
Now everyone is in bed, presents are under the tree, eggs and pies are cooking and Love Actually is playing in the TV! The kids should be asleep soon!!
