Christmas Eve

After Rylie late-nights last week, we all slept in a little on Christmas Eve day. David was off work luckily & we took Rylie to Mimi's for a little while to nap (which didn't happen!) before taking her to a children's Christmas Eve church service. She did very well during the service & sat in her own seat without fidgeting too much. All she wanted to do was hold the candles they give out to people. She even clapped at times when the kids finished singing. This was the service that Rylie played baby Jesus in last year & David & I were Mary & Joseph. It was neat to see it this year from the audience side!

After the service, we went back to Mimi's for dinner. Rylie was so cranky & still wouldn't nap so her & I went ahead & came home. David had to go back to the church to direct the broadcast of their later service. Rylie & I got in our pj's, finished some cleaning, set milk & cookies out for Santa, read "The Night Before Christmas" & then watched "The Santa Clause" as we waited for my mom to arrive & David to get home!
