The fam headed down to Orlando on Thursday before Christmas. We just headed down in two shifts, Rian and the Critters during the day and Abbey and I after work that night. After a relaxing Friday we were ready for the Christmas whirlwind. Every year my mother has Christmas Eve dinner at her house. This year we headed to the children's service @ St. Lukes and had a great time. It was a wonderful (interactive) sermon, yes I said interactive.
After church we headed over to my mom's house to take care of the last minute touches to get ready for dinner. After dinner, Grandma B kept the tradition going and read Twas the Night Before Christmas, with her own twist. During the story she inserts peoples names and has them hunt for hidden presents.
After a little clean up we packed up and headed back to Grandma Kate's to put the Critters to bed.
Here are a few shots from the night:
Note: There will be more blogs coming soon to catch up. The cameras are still in two separate cities as Rian is still in Orlando.
