Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve day was spent at home getting ready for church that night and vacation the following day. Mommy and the boys left about 4pm to head to Belleview - after the 5pm and 7pm services we headed back home to pick up Daddy - he had one service at 6pm at Druid Hills. The van was already loaded and we took off for Seffner. With one stop for dinner we managed to make it in by 10:15pm. Here we are still dressed up in our Christmas Eve finery.

The boys were fascinated by Granddaddy's expanded Christmas village. This year he almost doubled the size by adding a connecting piece from the regular village to the pool table and using it as a surface too.....

Eventually we were able to settle the boys down, get baths and lay out some very special items for Santa Claus.....

Once the little angels were asleep, the elves got to work and put out the Christmas presents for 18 people for the next morning (our four plus Grandmommy and Granddaddy, Uncle Daniel's crew of 5, Aunt Jani and Uncle Dan, Clark, Sam and Sarah and Sarah's friends Kristoph and Rita from Germany).
