Christmas Eve

I'm snuggled up next to Mason, half watching "Love Actually" while I type this.  It's probably my most favorite movie of all time, and watching it on Christmas Eve has become a favorite tradition as well.  And because of that, this post will be short & sweet.

Christmas Eve is magical when a child's in your family.  Charlie has been smiling all day and his energy was contagious.  We had a day of playing and relaxing and baking and movie watching and more playing.

After a supper of snacks, we let Charlie unwrap one present-- his Christmas book and jammies.  He insisted we read the book ("The Grinch Who Stole Christmas") before putting on the jammies.  We then jumped in the car and toodled around Grundy looking at lights.  C was excited to point out any house that contained lights and sometimes demanding that "Daddy! Back up! Back up!"  Eventually, his interest in the lights waned and he started a random game of "I'm thinking of something....." which I have to admit, he's pretty good at.

Before battling bedtime, we posed in front of our tree for what's become the annual Christmas Eve photo.  I love this little tradition.  I love this little holiday.  Merry Christmas everyone!

And of course, thinking of our sweet Maddy tonight so had to include these from last year.  Oh the things she put up with here in Spahnville.
