With hopes that St. Nickolas soon would be there. The children were nested all snug in their beds....
Well - before we were snug in our beds, we did head to church for our favorite Christmas Eve service. It's put on by the children (ages 4-3rd grade). So cute and fun. Totally the way to prepare for the celebration of Jesus' birthday!
Once we got home (after another tour of lights in the cold misty rain) we had our own reinactment of the Christmas story with our little people and then sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and of course partook of some of his delicious birthday cake.
Afterwards Megan said it was time for bed so that she could go "fast asleep." Somewhere she heard that Santa comes when you are "fast asleep".
