All dressed and ready to go to the Christmas Eve service at Mamoo's church. The service was great - exactly 30 minutes start to finish. It was a live nativity with scripture readings. My favorite part was We Three Kings when each king sang a solo and then was joined by the congregation.
McIver loves the Santa ornament that Grandma Janet gave him.
Making the reindeer food so Santa can find our house.
After church, Mamoo, GranGran and GranDaddy came over to our house for a visit. We had been invited to a drop-in in our neighborhood so they didn't stay long. Mamoo just loves Tex and welcomed him on to the sofa with her.
We had a good time at the drop-in, hosted by our neighbor's mom who lives just around the corner. We were able to meet some more neighbors and the kids had a chance to play with Harry and Kate (we had not seen them all last week). The only problem occurred when it was time to go. I noticed McIver's cup and asked what he had been drinking - he laughed very manically and pronounced that he had had 4 (FOUR!) cups of Coke. Surprisingly, once we got home, dressed for bed and read How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Twas the Night Before Christmas, he settled down pretty easily. (Or maybe it was the threat that Santa wouldn't come in if anyone was awake!)
