Christmas Eve at my parents' house never disappoints...
from the heaping plates full of delicious home-cooked food,
to the love & laughs & family fun.
We had such a wonderful time together, just enjoying each other and watching as Hudson played with each of his wonderful presents. We had tea parties at his precious new table, played dinosaurs, threw play-doh "footballs", had a mini- round of golf, and watched as Hudson did some major dancing in the foyer.
Throughout the night, Will kept us updated on Santa's whereabouts, thanks to the NORAD Santa Tracker. We packed up all of the presents and left as the big guy was filling stockings in Brazil, and made it home just as he landed in Knoxville, Tennessee, only a few hours to our northwest. Whew! As quickly as the sleigh moves, looks like we got Hudson tucked into bed just in time for Mr. Claus to arrive.
Our sweet boy had a blast, and we did too.....
There's just something soo magical about Christmas Eve.
Hope yours was full of magic, too!
