Christmas Eve

I have to confess, it is very difficult for me to post about Christmas once Christmas is over. Why is it that all the magic and splendor and beautiful decor looks like clutter that you can't wait to take down the day after Christmas? At least, for me anyway... But, I didn't take these pictures for no reason, and we truly had a wonderful Christmas, so allow me to re-live Christmas one last time for you beginning with Christmas eve:

The winds were finally gone, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. So, to the park we went on Christmas eve!

The dogs were very grateful to come along, (despite the fact that the little kids at the park attempted to ride them!)

As usual, Grandma kept the kids well-entertained! They are so blessed to have such a fun Grandma!

Well... at least the kid with the glasses is smiling!

And, certainly Grandma is smiling holding her newest grandbaby!

That evening we picked-up Uncle Nate from the airport. Just think, little Malachi... instead of Sierra getting thrown around, that will be you, soon!

Traditionally, we do Christmas eve service that night along with our Swedish meatballs. This year, since Daniel was working and Christmas fell on a Sunday, we saved all the festivities for Christmas day. Pictures to come... and then I'm officially done with Christmas!
