Every year we go to Christmas Eve Mass at St. Anne's Catholic Church downtown. After Mass we go over to my Grandparents house nearby for dinner and presents.
We took an entire extended family picture but that is on my brothers camera. Here is the one of our family.
Nathan read the kids a Nativity book along with The Night before Christmas book.
James and John Patrick made Santa some chocolate chip cookies during the day and set them out right before they went to bed. They also left the reindeer some carrots in the yard.
James was most excited about the chocolate coins he left in his stocking!
John Patrick is so sweet. I had used a diaper box to wrap one of his presents and when he opened the paper he screamed "DIAPERS, YEA!"
After opening presents at our house we went over to my parents house for breakfast and presents and then off to Beaumont for Christmas with the Smoters.
Baba always makes a Happy Birthday Jesus cake for Christmas day. The boys love to sing and blow out Jesus' candles.
As usual we were very spoiled this Christmas. We wished Joshua was here to share his first Christmas but we were very blessed for everyone remembering him in there own special ways.
