We were very fortunate to have both Dave's parents and my mom join us for Christmas this year! We all attended the kid-friendly Christmas Eve service at our church. It was the first time that the kids actually sat in the sanctuary with us (they usually go to the nursery/Sunday school). Despite bringing along a few distractions, Calder had trouble sitting still and kept asking to go to his class. Tessa was antsy too, but we all made it through!
After church, the kids each got to open up one present. As a kid, we always got pj's on Xmas eve...which I may start doing eventually. This year, I decided to give them books. Calder's was about space (of course!)
...and Tessa got a new doggy book. Clearly, she was kind of excited about it. :)
Tessa convinced Zaidy to read her new book right away.
