Christmas Eve

The kids (& 2 old people) all dressed and ready for Christmas Eve service. 


Look! Aidan found another squirrel!!  Taking pictures of Aidan has not gotten any better since this time. This is the best…urr…best of all the worst shot of all 3.DSC06991

Our church had 3 services on Thurs. and 3 on Friday.  We chose the 3 pm on Friday which gave us time to grab dinner before everything closed.  It was a great service.  They opened and closed with some TSO like this:

which thrilled Matt and they did this song again. The place was rockin’!

After dinner at Olive Garden (and meeting  a nice lady from our church in the bathroom who happens to live near by) we headed for home with no certain plans of how to spend the evening.

Once home we got a Skype call from Mimi, Papa, Uncle Adam, Uncle Sam & Aunt Marcia and Dallen & Madison.  The gift opening was pandemonium!!  Paper flying, kids screaming and Aidan handing me one of my opened gifts!! :)  Despite Skype technical difficulties we had a great visit and are thankful for technology that helped us feel a little closer to home for the holidays.
