Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve night, we went to celebrate what the meaning of Christmas is really about - the birth of Jesus. The kids had one of there better times in church - thank goodness because it was crowded. My favorite part of this candle light service is when the congregation sings Silent Night to conclude the service. Everyone is given a candle and when everyone has their candle lit, the lights in the church go off and we sing the song by candle light. With each stanza, we raise the candles higher. It really is a beautiful sight to look up on the last verse and see the church lit by candles.... gives me chills everytime

This pic melts my heart! So beautiful!
After church we made our annual stop at Aunt Bonnie's house. The kids always have a good time playing over there and we enjoy the company. We knew it would be a late night and the kids would fall asleep on the way home so we dressed them in jammies before making the ride home so that they would be ready to see what Santa left under the tree on Christmas morning.
