We left Owensboro around 2 on Christmas Eve. Our church has had a Christmas Eve service for the last few years and it has become one of our favorite traditions. We arrived back in Brentwood right in time for the service. We were blessed to be surrounded by our friends as we sung Christmas songs and lit a candle in honor of His birth. It was special. After the service, we raced home to get dinner on the table. The boys were excited to get home because they get to open one gift on Christmas Eve from us. As I finished up dinner, they each opened a gift. After dinner, we sprinkled reindeer dust on our front yard, laid out cookies for Santa, and read “Twas the Night before Christmas.” Finally, the boys were in bed. 🙂
The next morning was so fun! They actually remembered when they woke up about Santa and watned to rush down the stairs to check out their gifts (first year that they remembered). We spent a great morning together enjoying new toys and the boys’ excitement.
Zach’s family came down for lunch and spent the afternoon. Carter and Seth loved playing nerf guns with Tyler and Cody and Ethan enjoyed spending extra time in his Grandma’s lap. Overall, it was such a great day!
Here are the pictures:
The rest of the day was either ax fighting (yes, they all 3 got a styrofoam ax in their stocking – not my idea) or nerf gun shooting. They had SO much fun!
