Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

These two are quite a pair

These two melt my heart

Pappy and Abby

The Bain Family of 4

On Christmas Eve, we headed to church.  My mom stayed home with the two youngest because there wasn't a nursery.  It was a sweet time with Abby.  She loved it and was just worshipping away....hands in the air and all.  So funny.  We came home, ate, put the kids to bed and got ready for the night.  It didn't take us too long to get things set up and ready to go!

Christmas Day was a fun one!  Before we went downstairs to see what Santa had left, we sang Happy Birthday to Jesus.  Abby was excited to find some things she had asked for and we spent the day enjoying new things and family.

We had a great December!  We were super busy and made it to Houston the first weekend and then to LR for almost a full week.  The kids did great traveling and I tried to make the most of all of the Christmas activities here at home.  I think we all had a blast and Hunter got to celebrate his first Christmas.  Even though we LOVE us some Santa, we tried to keep the focus on the birth of Jesus.  After all, that IS the whole reason for this season.  Merry Christmas 2011!

Hi, Mandy! I'm Diane - Trish is my dad's first cousin. Anyway, I look at your blog on occasion, but I just noticed the Prestonwood live nativity post. My husband's family went to Prestonwood when they lived in Plano. Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!
