December 24th - Christmas Eve

It snowed on Christmas Eve.
It couldn't have been more perfect.
Do you see Will? Oh. my. word. that boy was excited. 
He kept running to different windows calling for me to come see the snow out each window. 
I think at first he thought it was just outside one window, but he was so excited when he realized it was everywhere.
We got ready to head to church.
The roads were terrible which really stressed me out!
The only serious car accident I've ever been in was a head on collision in a few inches of snow.
I know you can be as careful as you want to be but other people just do dumb stuff.
Thankfully we made it to church and home with out any issues. We were going to go to a live nativity, but we decided to skip it since the roads weren't plowed.'s hard to get a decent smile out of Christian.
We came home from church and read some books (to try to keep everyone calm) while dinner was cooking. This book was about how the real St. Nicholas loved God.
PopPop & Ryan matched...they didn't plan it :)
My mom gave each of the kids a present.
Each year she gives McKenna a snowglobe.
And every year she gives the boys a Nutcracker. This year Christian got a giant one! He was so excited.
Then they get to open one present from mom & dad.

Will got a pair of Thomas slippers. I thought he would love them, but he actually refuses to wear them.

Once the kids were in bed Ryan and I started setting up Christmas!
'Twas the night before Christmas, my favorite night of the year.
Christian wanted to know what would happen if he woke up in the middle of the night and went downstairs. Enter...the jingle bell trap.
Unfortunately, Christian broke out at 3:15am and asked me if we could start Christmas. I kept sending him back to bed over and over again until he finally fell back asleep at 5:30am.
Needless to say, I was a little exhausted on Christmas morning.
