After the weekend travels, our Christmas Eve was ever so relaxing. We really didn't do a thing other than give Sophie good naps and hang out together. We did go to Christmas Eve service at our church. That was really a good experience. We have never been able to go because we've already been in Illinois. Sophia stayed with us during the service, and she did a wonderful job. I think that will be a new Christmas Eve tradition since she loves Christmas Carols.
Last night, Erick and I stayed up until midnight. When Santa was done filling our stockings, we opened our gifts and had a midnight Christmas toast. Of course at 5:30 this morning, I regretted that decision just the slightest bit. Sophia must have known it was Christmas. Oh well. She had a wonderful time opening her gifts this morning. My favorite is her ballerina tutu. She's so cute in it and just struts around. She is playing with all of her new toys. She apparently thought she had a secret Christmas surprise in the back room when Daddy accidentally left some gingerbread boys out in a bag. When we noticed that she had gone quiet back there, we went back just in time to see that she had managed to get all three out of the bag and into her mouth. What can you say? It's Christmas! (We did manage to sneak a couple of them away from her in a couple of minutes)
This evening, we're going to Mary's house for Christmas supper and gifts. We're very excited for that celebration as well. I hope that everyone has had a lovely and meaningful Christmas so far with more to come.
