Christmas Eve day was pretty low-key... mostly just food preparation and playing with the boys. We hung up our stockings and finished up any last minute gift wrapping. We had a delicious turkey dinner followed by acting out the Nativity scene and reading The Night Before Christmas. We ate pie, left cookies out for Santa, took a picture by the tree, and finally got the boys to bed.
|Jacob was pretty good about leaving the ornaments on the tree, but he loved to touch them. He'd go around poking them and saying, "Ball... ball... ball..."|
|Jamie thought he was ruining my picture by jumping in at the last second, but it ended up with my getting a rare picture of his real smile. Joke's on him!|
|from our Nativity scene... Jamie played both a shepherd and a wiseman. Jacob was not interested in being involved and escaped at the first possible moment.|
