Thank you for all your wonderful Christmas notes in my previous post! Our Christmas celebrations began on the afternoon of Christmas Eve. We went to our church's beautiful candlelight service where we sang Christmas carols and listened to the story of the birth of Christ.
Afterwards, a friend joined us for a Christmas Eve dinner.
We had roast beef, potatoes, carrots and homemade macaroni and cheese.
Gingerbread with caramel sauce and whipped cream for dessert.
Before bed the girls and Benjamin made some food for Santa's reindeer. They love oats and cookie sprinkles!
They sprinkled it along our front walkway.
Then it was time to open new Christmas pajamas. Before Phillip took this picture, I told them to pretend they like each other. ;0)
Christmas morning came bright and early. The girls and Benjamin checked to see if the reindeer had eaten their food. :0)
We had a wonderful time opening gifts together...
Even Fern got a new toy!
Warm cinnamon rolls for breakfast.
Later that afternoon we went to Nana and Papa's house for a ham and turkey dinner. Thank you for looking at just a few pictures of our fun Christmas! I'll be back soon for Show and Tell Friday!
