Christmas Eve started slowly for us. We baked cookies all afternoon after going out for two hours to get a few ingredients Great Grandmom didn't have. Phew traffic! After cleaning up the kitchen we ate venison stew and hurried off to church (BCCC) for a candlelit service. The kids got glowsticks for safety's sake so they were thrilled. W really liked the Happy Birthday Jesus song. When we got back we opened our Christmas eve presents (new jammies and toothbrushes) before visiting a bit with the great grandparents. Then it was "brush teeth - read books - go sleep!!" G fell asleep in Daddy's arms before the 12 days of Christmas song book was even over!
