On Christmas Eve we carried on our annual family tradition of WECC church service, then to Waffle House for dinner with the Crenshaw’s and then to drive around and look at all the Christmas lights- voting on our favorites while eating candy canes. This year was particularly sticky (see Ali Rose last picture) and certainly blessed! Jack REALLY had trouble sleeping this year, he was so excited about Christmas morning. He woke up every hour and checked with us if it was time to get up yet. At 5:25am on Christmas morning all the kids (minus Ali Rose- our only GOOD sleeper), were in bed with us asking if we could go downstairs yet. I told them we had to wait until 6am. They literally watched the clock and counted (with cheers of glee) as each minute ticked off the clock. They were excited to say the least!
