First, we had Christmas Brunch at our house with Brian's mom and brother's family on Christmas Eve. Nessa was so happy to spend time with her cousins. She loves them so much, but we don't get to see them as often as we'd like with everyone's busy schedules.
We went to the Children's Christmas Eve service at our Church. Nessa was so good...She was quiet and listened to the songs and the Christmas Story the Priest reads to the children. The priest has all the children join him at the front of the church to read the story then they all walk around the congragation to take the baby Jesus to the manger. Then at the end of the service Santa comes in and prays to the Baby Jesus and then the priest says a blessing and asks the congragation to join him in blessing Santa for a safe journey and such. Nessa was so cute holding her little hand up with everyone else to bless Santa.
