Christmas Eve!

We had a great day on Christmas Eve!  Gammy, Pepaw, and Papaw C came that morning, and we had lunch together.  That afternoon, the kids worked on their gingerbread house. :)  We do NOT do homemade gingerbread houses around here.  Ain't nobody got time...
We made cookies for Santa...
We got ready for our Christmas Eve service!
So happy that my Papaw is with us!
Austi bug and her sweet buddy, Anderson...
We have a tradition of eating waffles for dinner on Christmas Eve night, but this year I decided that my kitchen was closed, so we went to Waffle House. :) It was so fun, so I suppose that will be a new tradition...
When we got home, we got ready for bed, and set out the cookies and milk for Santa.
Then we snuggled on the couch and watched The Nativity.
After the kids went to bed, I started preparing for Christmas. I set the table, and did a few things in the kitchen. My Papaw sat in there with me and read his Bible.
And then Santa came!
We did really good in the Santa department this year. Austin only wanted 2 dolls from Santa, and Bennett asked for a big tractor. They got those things, and a few other happies that I had already gotten from Target... slippers, hats, cups, and a fishing pole.  Austin has been begging for a fishing pole for like 2 years.  :)
We are so blessed!!
