Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve, I was able to take the day off and do some final cleaning, picking up, and preparing food for Christmas morning brunch.  Mike slept in and did some last minute shopping. We went to my aunt's house for Christmas dinner and it was fantastic!  Family and food are my favorite!  The younger kids opened some presents and the big older people played with the kids toys!  One of them got the Find It Tube.  It's awesome!  I have one at work and the kids love it.  So the adults were trying to find all the hidden treasures.  Lots of fun.

After we left my aunts, we headed back to Tulsa, where we thought we were gonna meet up with Mike's parents at the Chalkboard.  But they were taking forever and they told us to head on home.  Thankfully we did, cause I forgot to pick up eggs for Melanie.  So I went to pick up the eggs and went back home.  Then I headed to the 11:00 Candle Light Service at Boston Avenue.  Mike wasn't feeling well so he stayed home waiting for his parents to come over. Mike's parents stayed with us this weekend and it was so much fun! The service was beautiful and I got some pictures as well. 

At the end of the service, we sang carols as the candles were lit around the sanctuary.  It's one of my favorite church services to go to.

These are the same pictures, just playing around with some of my new PW actions!  I love them!
