Merry Merry to All!

~outside of Trinity church on Xmas eve.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! This was the first year in a long time that I really didn't want the day to end. What a magical day. On Christmas Eve, we took Kaden to church for the first time ever. He was not a huge fan, but did enjoy the glow sticks that the little ones got, while the adults had candles for Silent Night. It was a great way to start the festivities! We then went home, and made sure to check for Santa the whole way, laid out some cookies for him (cake balls too!) and carrots for the reindeer, and then off to bed he went. The fact that the cookies and milk were gone completely boggled his mind, and he brought it up several times throughout Xmas day. Never mind the gifts....he was mystified with the cookies! And to me, that truly symbolizes what it's all about anyway...the Magic.

~daddy and kaden looking for santa and his reindeer.

~leaving cookies out for santa. He especially wanted to leave one of the reindeer cookies he made with Mamaw.

~and cracking up because he wanted to eat the cookie as an afterthought.

~santa came!

~playing peekaboo xmas morning.

~love this expression.

~highly engrossed in the book "don't bite your friends".

~mama wants to borrow these. thanks Uncle Tobe!

~daddy always had a scavenger hunt for one gift, so he made sure that santa did the same for was the first note in the tree.

and this is in the middle of it....

and next year we will most likely make sure everything is PUT together before opening...poor lil man!

Mamaw and Papaw came over later in the afternoon for steaks, and we truly had a wonderful evening!
