"Twas the Night Before Christmas..."

I simply LOVE Christmas Eve. It is such a magical day to me especially because of Cole. This truly is my absolute favorite time of year and watching all the excitement through Cole's eyes is just awesome.

We started Christmas Eve by opening our Christmas jammies followed by showers and baking Christmas cookies!

We spent the morning baking and decorating and eating Christmas cookies. Daddy and Cole did such a wonderful job cutting all the cookies out!

After lunch we headed over to my parents for some more festive fun! We had a ginger bread house contest! It was soooo much fun! It will definitely be a tradition we do every year now!

Here is our super cute house!

This is my parents house!
And here is Kori and Jon's house!

After taking group pictures and dinner we headed out to the back patio to make Smores before heading home to get ready for Santa!

We picked out the perfect cookies to leave out for Santa, poured him a glass of milk and Cole made a list of things he wanted just in case Santa couldn't remember. On the list was a white fire truck, a police car, Spider man stuff and games.

Then we read our Christmas books and fell asleep wondering what Santa was going to bring! It was a perfect day and a perfect night filled with family! AND I cannot believe there will be TWO more babies to celebrate Christmas with next year!
