Christmas Eve was wonderful for us this year. We spent the whole day just hanging out, and having quality time with each other. The one thing I love about this time of year is the time we get to spend with family. Especially when we can just hang out, and enjoy each other's company. And that is what Christmas Eve was for us this year. It was pure bliss.
Every year, we attend the Bethel Reformed Christmas Program on Christmas Eve to watch the Kalkwarf kids perform in their Christmas program. It was a lovely service, just like always. It got a bit long this year, as 1-1/2 hours is too much for a 2 year old to sit still, in the dark, and stay quiet, but Carson did very well. We were very proud of him after we escaped the busy crowds that evening with a sack of peanuts, and an apple.
After we got home, we played hard. We let Carson open his one gift, which were his Christmas pajamas to be worn that night. He was pretty excited to wear his pajamas, but he was also excited to open more presents. We had to stop him, and explain that he could open the rest in the morning.
After we got our little Wee Lad to bed that night, Santa went to work. I was so excited to see what his reaction would be to what Santa was bringing, and it was nothing shy of amazing.
I love how our Christmas Eve is the calm before the storm, but in a fabulous way! We all know to just relax, and enjoy our day together, because come morning time, it is a very busy day for all of us. And, we love both extremes!
Merry Christmas to all of you! Much love from our family, to yours.
