Christmas EVE at our house

This year, we four are staying here in NC for Christmas.  Last year, my family was able to come & join us.  This is the first year I have not seen my family on Christmas day (second year for Jake & seeing his family). 
Here are a few fun things we are doing to make our own family memories:

On Monday, Aunt Sue came over with some presents for the girls.  Sue teaches Lily Sunday School & the girls just love her!

We went & rode the Polar Express at Mayfair.  Lily did the parade wave the entire trip:

Christmas Eve morning we opened the Christmas Eve box.

Inside the box was sugar cones, frosting & candy to make Christmas trees.  Lily LOVED it....she ate a lot of the candy (another reason to do it in the morning & not right before bed).
There was also a Christmas movie, popcorn, twizzlers & hot chocolate (we did that at night after bath).

Ella & Daddy sampling.

We went over to Nonnie & Papa's house at 2pm for a big lunch.  I am so bummed that I left my camera in my purse the entire time.  I meant to take pictures of the girls with them.  We are so thankful for our NC family.
