We had a fun, relaxing Christmas Eve, just spending time together and getting ready for the next day. We spent the first part of the day hanging out in our jammies.
We had to run over to Emily's house so that I could print something and Emory had a blast playing with all of Cammie's toys while she wasn't there! Haha!
Grams came over to give Emory her Christmas presents and Emory had fun ripping the paper.
And then standing on all of her presents. Haha. She definitely didn't understand that they were fun things for her.
After present time, we got ready for the Christmas Eve service at church. We always went to a similar service growing up and I love continuing the tradition with Emory. There's just something about scripture and Christmas carols and dimmed lighting that makes the magic of Christmas come alive. To sing the words of songs that you've been singing all month and really focus on the meaning, on the reason for Christmas, is amazing. Thank you, Jesus!
But first, we had a little family photo shoot before we left. : )
My two loves. Can't get enough of them!
So precious! For some reason Emory always poses and smiles with daddy, but never with mommy! No fair!
Family selfie! I'm so blessed!
Then I busted out the real camera and snapped a few shots of my sweet girl.
Love love love her little nativity dress.
Acting silly instead of smiling!
My sweet baby girl.
Grandma and grandpa came in for the Christmas eve service and then we ate at IHOP afterwards. So delicious! Then we hurried Emory to bed so that Santa could come! She had no clue what was going on, but it was still fun to tell her what was going to happen the next morning!
