On Christmas Eve afternoon we headed to church with the Hales and McDonoughs. The McDonough's church has a family service that works out perfectly for all of us.
Ryan and Grayson did surprisingly well for the hour - Ethan even took Ryan and Audrey up to the front to drop off their donations! Big kids! Ryan was so proud.
After church we headed back to our house for some brats & tamales. Yes, such a random combination but no one could decide what they wanted so we had both.
The brats were from Kuby's and the Tamales from Luna's - everything was delicious!!! After we ate we decorated some cookies!
And after Ryan decorated his he wanted to eat it...so he did.
We had a lot left for Santa!
Sarah took Ryan and Audrey outside to leave some food out for the reindeer!
Soon everyone headed home and we got the boys ready for bed. Ryan and I
read listened to The Night Before Christmas, a book that his Pro Yiayia and Papu recorded in their voices for him. It's so fun to hear and he loved it!
After the story we set out some milk and cookies for santa and Ryan headed up to bed
Once Kevin had the boys tucked away, Santa came....
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...
And Santa's gifts were wrapped in red!
Luckily we didn't have any assembling to do so we were able to relax and watch a movie!
