Christmas Eve started with Brady's first orange slice---he loves them and asks for them constantly
Then the annual decorating of the Gingerbread House. The icing pack busted this year so the kids went for a crazy, "messy" house. (Ryan practicing his crazy photo face)
Handmade Christmas card for Daddy. His favorite gift!
Mark and his mini---more alike every year!
Then we headed to mom and dad to open gifts, and snack on some yummy apps before heading to the Christmas Eve service at our church.
Kacey and her sweet girls
Caryn and 1/2 of her sweet boys
Aunt Shirley and James Wright
A very typical picture of Brady these day
We had the JOY of hearing Ryan recite the entire chapter of Luke 2 this year…such a treat
sweet boy's first Christmas
Brady's such a big helper :)
Love that Crew gives such great hugs!

and finally Ryan…whew
They were so cute thanking the person that drew their name. YAY Cousins!
I was there too
then we moved onto the adults Oldest to youngest
Mark and I drew my sisters I decided to take them on a little scavenger hunt for their gift, since we probably won't have them both again for years!
YAY for scavenger hunt fun:))). Grandma joined us this year which was a WONDERFUL treat
I love this picture!
After the kids changed onto PJs we went to church and then back to our house. Being sick on Christmas is for the birds, but I'm so thankful we were able to celebrate together!
