Twas the Night Before Christmas...

After a lovely service at CFC with candlelight, we headed to Aunt Betty's home for a delicious Christmas Eve feast and were able to see all Dave's mom's side of the family for the annual Christmas Eve party. We had a great time seeing everyone!
When we got home, we got the boys in their Christmas jammies and read our stories. Dave read the Christmas story from Luke and a children's book about the Nativity and I read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" as the boys were drinking their egg nog. It's always a very sweet time together. We then put out egg nog and cookies for Santa and sent the boys off to bed eagerly awaiting the morning. Dave and I were able to watch part of "It's a Wonderful Life" and read a couple of passages on the Incarnation together before sleepily going to bed ourselves.
