I have a hard time picking pictures but here are a few from Christmas Eve!




Brooks and Papa

Barrett enjoying the peppermint intended for the gingerbread house.


The boys ate candy while we made the house


My sweet Aunt Rosie spent the evening and day with us. Aunt Rosie is my mom's mother's sister. We are so thankful for her. She's a great grandmother to our boys on my side of our family.

Papa reading the Christmas story (very quickly). Doesn't appear that way but the need was there!

Brooks' job was to put Baby Jesus in all the nativities.


Delicious cookies for SANTA


Quick run outside to leave food for the reindeer. Brooks thought they would like dog food. So Rudy enjoyed Purina and carrots!

What a fun night. Love the dog food and putting baby Jesus in the manger scenes, we'll have to try that next year. And I'll have to say I'm glad that there are others who are OK with the tradition of Santa being a fun part of the holiday.

Your photos are looking great! And then all of a sudden the flash pops in a photo with Brooks and the carrots - yikes! :-) I decided to change my flash order and rush it - not sure it will be here in time, but hoping it is! You changed my mind....

How did you get the boys to wear those hats?
