Merry Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is always an exciting day, but we had to wait for evening for some real excitement.  This morning and afternoon were filled with errands and cleaning.  That's real life, folks! 

Man Cub is much to big to reprise last year's role as Baby Jesus, but this year he was able to enjoy the animals in the live nativity.  He did not want to leave the 2 goats and 2 sheep.  Our time on the farm has come in handy since he walked straight up to them to gently pet them.  When we finally coaxed him over the the donkey, he smiled so big!  It was all so familiar to him from the farm.  This donkey was super sweet and soft.  Then Man Cub saw the camel quietly laying down to pose for photos, and his night was made.  That boy beelined through the crowd straight for the fluffy, gentle giant.  Mommy is faster than him though and caught him before he photo-bombed some poor, unsuspecting family.  We waited our turn, got a smile out of the camel, and sunk our hands into some super soft fur.  Poor boy was not pleased when he had to go inside for worship.  Maybe we need to look into getting a camel for our future farm....

Last year was our first time to visit the kid-friendly service, and we missed most of it since we were only on stage as the Holy Family for a few minutes during the middle of it.  Y'all, it was wild!  So loud.  Ha.  I'm all for littles being in worship services, but when it's smack dab in the middle of dinner time for tiny bellies, wow.  We had a bag full of Christmas books, a nursing cover, and lots of family members for holding duty, so we made it through without too much of a scene.  Little kiddos with tiny glow sticks singing Silent Night is pretty precious.

My grandparents and parents followed us home for honey baked ham dinner and Grinch drinks.  Yum!  Man Cub entertained us all kinds of acrobatics and showed off more of his vocabulary to his great-grandparents.  He stayed up way too late, but it was so worth it. 

Now Isaac is building a fire truck for in the morning.  Can't wait to see the little guy's face when he see what Mommy and Daddy got him for Christmas! 

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
