Christmas Eve 2014!!

Christmas Eve!! The most magical day of the year! Especially with kids!
It was also one of the busiest days of the year!
I only had about 500 20 things to do that day.
But all works out to get things done.
Midday we made cookies for Santa.
The boys did a fantastic job decorating them!!
Around 4:30 my family starts arriving! Im usually still getting myself or the boys ready.
The stomach bug decided to hit Ryder and he started throwing up after that made our day a little crazier. He was sleeping when everyone arrived.

Maddox learning how to be cool from his freshly turned 16 year old cousin!

That is one cute and sweet hubby of mine!
Stella could not be any more PRECIOUS!!
Kevin bringing in our steaks and chicken!!
Ryder is up and still not feeling well. He ate 2 bites of bread and laid on Chris's shoulder after that.
Our spread!!
What a cute reindeer!
Im glad I got this family pic. Usually I take lots of pictures of each individual family but with Ryder being sick...I just didn't have it in me this year. Immediately after this....Chris took Ryder upstairs and put his pj's on and they stayed home while the rest of us went to communion at Mawmaw's church.
When it was time for presents....he felt well enough to come back downstairs to open his. I
And at about this time...Maddox is starting to get sick.
Stella was too hot in her outfit! It's nice being a toddler....just take it off!
our gift to Tori....I'm hoping she'll let me borrow it! hehe!

Paw Patrol Chase is in the house!!!

And Marshall

I think opening gifts helped him to feel better.
Mawmaw opening her gifts!
Love this little neice of mine....she's growing up way too fast!
Poor Maddox....he does not handle being sick well.
Ryder stayed up for me to read Twas the Night Before Christmas and to throw out reindeer food but Maddox was already asleep from not feeling well.
Santa came!!

Despite the sickness....we had a very special and blessed Christmas Eve. I have an amazing family and I love getting to spend time with each and every one of them!!

I am so thankful for Christmas and the reason we celebrate. God truly sent us the best gift we could ever have!
