After our family celebration in the morning, we headed off to the candlelight service at our church, went out for sushi together for dinner, and headed home to get ready for Santa!
We couldn’t believe that they made it snow INSIDE church!
When we got back from church, we got on our jammies, put out cookies & milk for Santa (and carrots for the reindeer and cheese for Santa Mouse), and got ready for our long winters nap!
Emily read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” this year and did an awesome job!
And Ben was done by the time Abby finished our other favorite Christmas Eve story, “Santa’s Favorite Story”…
As we were all off to bed, Mom decided to have a latte because she WOULDN’T be getting that long winter’s nap…
After Santa came, Pinocchio said his farewells to the Beach house for another season… and left Mom & Dad with a little bit more peace in their lives
