I'm going to split all of the Christmas posts up so as not to overwhelm you with pictures. We spent most of Christmas Eve day at home. I thought I was going to have a nice, relaxing day and it turns out that I was on my feet for the entire day doing odds and ends things. We walked (yes, I said walked~woohoo for living less than .5 mile from the church & avoiding the crowded parking lot) to church and had a great time at church praising the Lord! Hannah got so excited that she even ran the aisle during the middle of the pastor's sermon. Talk about one of the my most humiliating experiences as a parent...yet. The girls were getting really restless so I was going to take them outside and trying to get two toddlers over feet and past an elderly woman wasn't easy. Well, Hannah made it out of our aisle first and headed towards the front of the sanctuary instead of the back. The pastor was in the middle of his sermon so it's not like I could run after her or yell for her. She actually rounded the corner and went around the front (thank goodness she didn't run up the stairs onto the stage), but someone kindly directed her back out just as George was going after her. That was our highlight of the evening!
After that we headed to the Lantz's for our traditional Christmas Eve chinese dinner and some good ol' fellowship with family! Here are some pictures:
