Christmas Eve

Our Christmas Eve Day took an unexpected turn. We had everything planned around Kevin's work schedule and at the last minute it changed. Typical! But we made it work. On Christmas Eve the boys and I hung around the house until it was time to go to great-grandma's house for dinner around 5:00. Karson had a great time with his cousin Katelyn. She kept him entertained the entire time.
Playing games

Playing hide & go seek. One of our favorite games these days

We didn't think that Kevin would be able to make it to my grandma's house for Christmas Eve dinner because he had to work but he did get off work in time. We are so happy to have such a dedicated and hard working husband and daddy.

Karson got a train whistle! Loved it.....for a few minutes and then it was on to the next for him. This is something that I really struggled with for Karson. He was very excited and would get overly anxious about the present opening. I have really stressed to Karson that it's not all about the presents but it's hard for a 2 year old to fully understand. I am hoping that someday he does understand.

Kipton was so good. He was so happy and friendly to all of our family. He thought that this tractor was to ride on instead of to push.

My trusty sidekick. He is such a momma's boy and won't hardly let me out of his sight.

After Grandma's house we went to Kevin's parents for their Christmas gift exchange. It is always so hard to go to so many places but we made it work and the boys were super that night. They did really good to be out so late.

Karson enjoying his new Mickey Mouse scooter he saw in the toy magazine and has wanted ever since. His Mamaw and Papaw bought this for him. He loves it!

Kipton taking a break and loving on his new dog. So sweet

Kevin's parents also got the boys drum sets. Aren't I the lucky one to hear them? HAHA!

That concludes our Christmas Eve. It was a great one and the boys did great. So thankful for another year of family, food, and laughs together. The boys make it so fun!
