Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas Eve at my parents house as we do every year and it's just so nice to only have to go to one place.  We typically get down there around 11 AM to Noon and snack and eat a light lunch, have dinner around 5:30 and then we headed off to Christmas Eve service at their church.  Since it was starting to snow and the temperature was dropping, the service was a little shorter than usual and we were back to their house by 8 PM.  

This year Mom and Dad picked up our desserts from Cheesecake Factory and everyone got to pick what flavor of cheesecake they wanted and it was wonderful!  After eating desserts and a few photos, we got down to business of opening up presents.  Emma Claire just stared at them and loved to chew on what ever was inside whether it was shoes or clothes, did not matter to her.  We had a fun time watching her with the presents and her stocking, she was so funny and would get tickled at herself which turned into endless time of laughter!
 Our Family
Nana, Emma Claire and Papa
1st Present...I secretly think she just liked the pretty bow Mom put on all of them!
 New pair of Black Sparkle Chuck Taylors!!! So Cute!
 Another pair of shoes.....
 Clothes and more clothes....we are ready for the winter/spring/summer time with new shoes and clothes!
 Now onto the stocking which held some money from Great Grandma Barnicoat and a few other little things including a new water toy which she just laughs at in the bath tub
Rockin' the new Chucks with tight and her smocked dress...Only my child!

Thanks Nana and Papa for such a wonderful Christmas!  We are so blessed and thankful for our entire family and our best present, Emma Claire!

Luke 2:9-12  
9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ [a] the Lord.
12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
