This year was a little different because Romney had to work Christmas this year.
So we planned on doing our Christmas on Christmas eve.
We counted the days down to the 24th rather than the 25th.
And we have been told that Santa goes to all firefighters houses early.
So we were going to be just fine.
This month has been so busy!
But a fun busy.
However the 2 days before Christmas were low key and calm.
I loved it!
My parents came into town to be with us for Christmas Eve and see the kids open presents and then planned to go to my brothers on the actual day of Christmas to see his kids open presents.
Pretty convenient I'd say.
On our personal Christmas Eve we read in the Bible Luke chapter 2.
We sat on our couch and watched a little Nativity video so that we could see what we just read about.
I love that my mom took this picture.
Were all squished together and calm as we watched a short youtube video of the birth of the Savior.
After we read the nativity story we had to read
THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
I'm not sure how we missed taking pictures of Miles putting cookies out for Santa.
But we did get a picture of Miles putting out the reindeer food he made at school.
Once the cookies, milk, and reindeer food was ready the kids were ready for bed!
Everyone was so excited!
When Miles went to bed he told Romney he was so excited for Christmas because he was going to get a new frog...
Lets hope Santa took good notes!
