I'm so thankful for pictures. How lucky to be able to capture moments from special days. Plus pictures have a way of making things look quiet, sweet and not nearly as chaotic as moments often are. Christmas Eve and Christmas day was full of family and traditions. We had a late breakfast with my family Christmas Eve morning, went to a Christmas Eve service, followed by a dinner full of favorite foods with my family and in-laws. And way too many sweets and cookies! Everyone changed into pajamas and the kids opened presents and went to bed, so the adults could hang out and exchange gifts.
Christmas morning we opened a few presents at our house. Don't tell Addilyn but we saved a few gifts she got for her birthday where she got SO many, and rewrapped them to give her for Christmas. We headed to Chris' parents to open presents (where I forgot my camera!), had breakfast and after Addilyn's nap we went back for an early dinner. The day was perfect and we're so lucky to be able to celebrate with both of our families close by.
