Christmas Eve

We had a great Christmas Eve day!  For us, things finally start slowing down by this time and we just get to soak up the last little bit of Christmas and spend time with one another.  We started our day with the three of us going to the Waysider for some yummy pancakes! We spent the rest of the day playing and relaxing until it was time to go to church.  We we to the Christmas Eve candlelight Communion at our church and it was beautiful!  After dinner, it was time to get ready for Santa! :)  I know she is too young to know anything this year but I wanted to start some of our traditions this year. We opened our 2010 ornaments and put them on the tree, attempted to read the Night before Christmas and had planned on reading the real story of Christmas but she was not at all interested and we set out cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer.  Riley and I have a tradition of always watching Christmas Vacation each year so once Santa gifts were put out, we enjoyed our favorite Christmas movie! I love traditions whether old ones or new!  I was excited to start a few new ones this year with our little family!
