I heard Chase get up around normal time Christmas and went out to take his picture as he came out of his room but he never did. I finally had to go get him around 7:30. Even though we don't really do Santa doesn't mean there isn't "magic" when you wake up and see the tree and presents!

Finishing the advent calendar with baby Jesus. He loved doing the calendar every day!

He was very particular where he put everything.

All the boys by the tree.

Before presents we read the Christmas Story but I was nursing so I didn't get any pictures. Then we let Chase hand out stockings.

After naps we headed over to the Watsons for dinner. Their boys like trains as well so I bought all of them matching train shirts and we had to get a picture. Six boys ages 4 and under!

Christmas Eve

It was fun having Christmas at the end of a 4 day weekend. Lots of parties leading up to Christmas. As usual   I didn't take many pictures over the weekend so I was determined to on Christmas Eve. In the morning we went to brunch with some friends from the squadron who were also in town. Heather, the hostess, had cookie decorating for the kids. She went all out with aprons and everything!

Chase and his buddy Bruce from his Wee Wings class last year.

I wanted Jacob to try a few...

They have 2 boys as well so our boys loved all the toys!

 For dinner, we headed over to our good friends, the Strohmeyers, house. At dinner they had Christmas Crackers. 

Chase was scared of the noise :)

I didn't even bother trying to get a picture with the kids! The Strohmeyers are moving in late spring and we are really going to miss them. Thanks for inviting us to dinner!

We are enjoying a low key Christmas here at home with the boys and dinner with friends. Here is our family after church on Sunday.

At the (amazing) party we went to on Saturday night they had one of those photo booths with props. It was a lot of fun. Here are few of the pictures.

Getting our Christmas Spirit on

Sorry for the lack of posting. In the beginning of the month Brad was gone for 10 days and we did a lot but didn't take any pictures. I need a third hand for picture taking! This time of year is so fun with Christmas parties and stuff but also very busy!! 

Anyways, as soon as Brad got back we headed to Lowes to get our tree. Chase was so excited!

We had some help putting on the lights!

Last night we attended a Christmas party put on by some friends in the squadron. It was a fun night out. It was also Brad's birthday! I am grateful beyond words for this man!
