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.
