Christmas Eve 2012

We had a great Christmas Eve!  I had an early morning photo session and then we came home to get ready to deliver some Christmas goodies.  We took the girls to see a few shut-ins and then to the assisted living home to visit a few of the ladies from our church who stay there.  We had a great visit and I think everyone enjoyed it.  Cohen had been so excited to share some of the cookies we had baked.  After we got back home we got ready for the Christmas Eve service at church.  Both girls go in the service with us and I have to say, Kate gave us (and everyone else in the service I'm sure) a good laugh.  Suzy sings in the choir and when Kate saw her she was so excited.  She had already picked out some of our family before the service started but it must have been a few minutes into it when she actually noticed it was Suzy sitting in the choir loft and from then on she just squealed "Suzeee" over and over.  It was cute but very noticeable.  I know Suzy loved it too!
After church we went to Sug & Pop's for Christmas Eve dinner.  Sug always goes all out on a very delicious meal!  Pop reads "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and we always get to open a special ornament from Aunt Vicki.  This year the girls got Georgia ornaments.  They were so precious!  The cutest thing was when Kate opened hers and saw the ornament and said "dooo dogs".  Proud Mommy moment :)  Kelly got the next GA ornament in the series Aunt Vicki gives him and I got a pretty Georgia ornament too!  I'm set on decorating a Georgia tree next year and these will go nicely on it!

We get Kate to sit for pictures by bribing her with cookies
She sat down, looked at me, and said (sheeezzz)

We left Sug & Pop's to hurry and get home to put out our reindeer food and cookies for Santa.  Kelly pulled the Santa tracker up on the iPad and when Cohen saw that Santa was in Canada and we told her that wasn't too far away, she was in a panic to get the food out and go to bed.  It was a fun end to a fun night!
