We had a wonderful 'Christmas week'! (Really the whole month of December was wonderful!)
My happy week started on the Monday before Christmas when I had dinner with two very good friends, and I got to attend Jayden's (very sweet) school Christmas show twice last week! And on Thursday I spent a wonderful time out to lunch with my Aunts, cousins, and sisters!
I already posted pictures of Jayden's show and I'm sorry to say that I forgot to bring my camera to the dinner and the lunch.
And if I post all my pictures in one post you'll be here forever so today I'll just highlight Christmas Eve and leave the rest of our celebrations for other posts.
Erik, Lori, and Mia were visiting other relatives Christmas Eve but they stopped by our house for a little while in the afternoon:
We didn't want to ruin that pretty dress so we had Mia don an apron...
...so she and Jayden could decorate the Birthday cake for Jesus:
(Poor Jesus. His Birthday Cake didn't start out very well...
...but with a little loving decorating it turned out fine!)
Jayden, funny little man!
Then Ray, Jayden, and I went to Mass:
We came home, had dinner, and then Jayden was off to bed early, and sometime during the night Santa Claus came and finished the milk and cookies Jayden had left for him, and he even sat at the computer and wrote a note for Jayden!
And he left a few gifts for Jayden and Mia under the tree:
Tomorrow our Christmas celebration!
