Christmas Eve Happenings

we laughed, we ate, and we yawned...
those were the happenings of Christmas eve... in chronological order.
since this was our last official Christmas as Hoosiers, we took in every second of every family function... and we enjoyed seeing all of our family so much! :)
yes, we ended up attending SIX different family functions in 72 hours... 
which is certainly not for the faint of heart!
but we made it through, we're alive, and even though it was pretty darn exhausting... 
we loved every minute!

on monday evening, we spent quality time with our immediate families.
 here are some of the holiday moments that i managed to capture with my camera...
(in-between chasing a toddler, and gorging myself with Christmas sweets, of course)

 our goddaughter, Sydnie Grace, on her very first Christmas eve...

 B wasted no time catching on to the whole "unwrapping" process...

 ... and Sophie... well, her personality certainly entertained the masses ;)
this girl is just too cute for words!

 after all of the gifts were opened,
 the girls transformed grandma & grandpa's basement into their own princess wonderland :)

see the video below for more details ;)




it was just too much fun to watch...

we eventually headed back to new harmony for our Wilson family "pajama tradition"...
each year, the entire family unwraps new coordinating Christmas PJs
to wear for our Christmas morning festivities! :)

it was little A's first pajama party!


B and little A had so much fun playing with the Nativity,
and playing their adorable little "crawl with me" game...

however; the toddler fuel was running on empty, so we decided to get home before
Santa put us on his naughty list! :)


we got B bathed and jammied, and she just loved setting out the milk and cookies for Santa.
of course, she made one last effort to make sure she was still on the nice list! :)


the elves went to work after B was fast asleep... or so i'm told. ;)



daddy and i did sneak out to find a few things that Santa left behind... 


... and then there was Christmas morning. xoxo

The video is absolutely precious! How fun to have three little girls so close in age. The picture of B yawning totally sums up the whole holiday experience! I'm glad you all had a wonderful Christmas Eve!
