Building memories

Christmas EveBaby girl in her Christmas pj's.

Us in ours.

Them in theirs.
Watching a Christmas movie together, eating yummy popcorn.

Then out we go in search of Christmas lights.

Nice and warm, we wander the neighborhood together.

Looking for the best of the best, excitement on their little faces.

Then back to our warm house to hang our stockings with care.

...and snuggle a bit before bed.

...and a moment or two for Bubu to practice his skills with the camera. ~Capturing mommy glowing with love for her beautiful family and feeling so Blessed!~

Then we hung up our candy canes...

...and ate one. Which happened to be the most exciting thing of the whole day, because mommy never lets us eat candy after dinner (or ever really). We read lots and lots of Christmas stories, and talked about baby Jesus.

Then it was off to bed for the little ones so that visions of sugar plums (or something like it) could dance through their heads. While mommy set to work doing "secret squirrel stuff".

Stockings well stuffed and off to bed for the last sleepy head. Can hardly wait to see their cute little excited faces in the morning. Feeling very satisfied with the sweet little cozy Christmas we are having. Building memories one family moment at a time.
