Twas the night before Christmas ...

Well, it is early Christmas Day here, as we wrap up our holiday preparations (pun intended) and get ready for a big day. Christmas Eve found us with last-minute shopping after a short day at work and going to the candlelight service at our church, which we had not been able to do the past few years because of our work schedules.
The service has gotten longer, which we loved, but Jake was too fussy, and we spent the majority of our time in the foyer. Still, he did fairly well, considering, and he loves the Baby Jesus.
We then went home and got ready for Santa. Jake doesn't understand the whole Christmas scene yet, but he could tell we were excited, so he was getting that way. He hung his stocking, tracked Santa on NORAD and set out cookies and milk for Santa. At first we think he was a little disappointed he didn't get the cookies and milk, as he was all ready to sit down on the stool with the plate of cookies, but we explained the cookies and milk were for Santa, and he set them down and did OK.

Here is a picture of Jake getting excited about Santa.

From our family to yours, we wish you happy holidays. We have everything we wished for this Christmas.
