Christmas Eve

After Santa visited our house Friday morning, we ran around like crazy trying to get everything packed up and ready to go to Memphis.  We got there around 3 and helped Peeps and De De finish up a few last minute things before Kelly, Grant and Reagan arrived.  We exchanged gifts with them and they got Ellie a Little People princess carriage with blocks.  Out of all of the toys she received this Christmas, she goes for this one every single time!  It really is cute, and I love Little People.  Her nativity is one of my favorites:)

We headed to church for the Christmas Eve service and Ellie did fantastic!  We had to sneak out once for a diaper change and another time just to stretch her legs, but overall she did so well.  I was very proud!

After church, the crowd arrived!  We had about 25 people total, and 4 kids aged almost 1, almost 2, 3, and 4!  It was a wild, LOUD night, but we had tons of fun!  I always enjoy our Christmas Eve family get togethers.

 Santa came!  Ellie LOVES Santa:)

After everyone left, we exchanged gifts with my parents and Matt and Rachel.  Ellie stayed up until 11:00!  BIG mistake.  She was up half the night starting around 1:00 am.  Believe me, we will never let that happen again!
