Christmas Eve/Christmas morning at our house means Jesus, Santa and Nana & Papa! Henry is always excited to see them drive up before dark on Christmas Eve.
We love our little Christmas Eve pajama and ornament tradition. I actually made our pants this time and that was a fun experience. Randall and Henry gave me a camera ornament and I gave Randall an elephant in a box singing “I want you to want me” and Henry got the best ornament in the history of ornaments…a Santa semi truck singing “Christmas Convoy”. I love this little tradition we have. I know they moan about it sometimes, but one day they will look back on this and appreciate me, surely!
Every year I take this photo and put it on the tree. This will be our 6th Christmas of this…and I cherish all 6 of these pictures so much.
One of the best parts of our Christmas season is our Jesse Tree. This was Henry putting the last ornament on it before bed on Christmas Eve. We put colored lights on our Jesse Tree this year to be different and I loved it. I like to use the lights like the colors in the salvation bracelet and make it have meaning. I love Henry’s mouth, concentrating on his ornament.
Henry put his milk and cookies out for Santa and he was so proud. he brought his cookies from Marmie’s house. She let him pick out what any cookies he wanted for Santa. Our Aunt Babs gave him this little Santa set when he was a baby. We love using it. Santa really enjoyed the Paul’s Bakery cookies from Van Buren from Marmie.
Making sure it is all in his stocking as he requested. He was very specific and Santa granted his wishes.
Just too excited. He had to sit a spell and see how that chair felt. I don’t think he has sat it since then, but that’s a subject for a different post. This chair….oh, this chair.
Testing out his new Hot Wheels bike from Nana & Papa was big time fun in the house. Notice those two in the background. Henry and those two are a trio, that is for sure.
