Tom made a big breakfast and we hung out at home in the morning. It was nice to have a low key morning since we will be so busy over the next few days. Tom and I both had a few little "elf" projects to get ready. Tom opened a present early a new Wii game and we all played together. While the little boys were in nap Baylor and I went to church for Christmas Eve Service. We went with Mimi, Pop, Mama, Papa, and Grandpa Shadday. Uncle Joe sang O Holy Night and it was beautiful. The whole service was great and really focused on the true meaning of Christmas! Baylor did a great job sitting through the service and enjoyed singing all the Christmas carols. For dinner we went to Mimi and Pop's house. Everything was so tasty and pretty. Santa stopped by and left a little present on the porch for all the kids. They were so excited! Baylor and Cooper kept checking the NORAD Santa tracker all night to see exactly where he was at and how long it would be before he was at our house. I always love when we sing carols before we end the night. Pop always sings Silent Night in German as the last song and it makes it feel like Christmas! What a great night.
