Christmas Eve 2008

This year for Christmas Eve we spent the evening with Aaron's family. Aaron loves going to Nate and Devanie's because they always have wonderful food, and last night was no different. We arrived a little after three and the snacks were plentiful. We were able to play a couple of games of pool, talk, and be with family.
We had a good ham dinner around 6 and then it was playing with the kids and doing the nativity story. Ethan had a fun time playing with his Daddy and Aurora. At the end of the evening Santa even showed up to talk to the kids. We had to leave early because Aaron has a very bad cold. He seems to catch everything lately. Poor baby.
The kids loved having Aaron swing them and then throw them on the bed.
Aurora was so sweet. She loved whispering things to Aaron and playing on the stairs with him and Ethan.

Aaron being his normal silly self with Santa.

Ethan was very scared of Santa. Maybe next year he will be more comfortable with him.

Ethan and Mama had fun flipping on the recliner. I love his I ate Santa's cookies shirt. It looks so good after he eats and when his belly sticks out.

I hope you guys had a Merry Christmas ( it sounds like you did!) Tell Aaron that I hope he feels better :(

Santa can be quite scary! :)
