With last year's Christmas Eve disaster at the front of my mind, I made a conscious effort to NOT recreate that! We had a lovely afternoon with some fun preparations. Emmeline helped with our candy making traditions...
Somehow Caleb even managed to snap beans with only one hand!
Best attempt at a Christmas Eve picture :). The service was absolutely glorious! Such a precious tradition that I absolutely adore!
After getting home, everyone got to open one present...another Christmas Eve tradition. It's always new jammies that they get to sleep in that night. Callie's came with a matching nightgown for her doll :)
All the Schrodt kids - we are so blessed! Time for bed - tomorrow is a BIG day!!
Stockings ready to go! (This really is one of my absolutely favorite traditions :) ) It's almost Christmas Charlie!
