the night of christmas eve

wishing i had a picture of my 3 babes dressed in their christmasy best at our christmas eve service.

but ian was crying and needing to be cuddled to sleep by gg velma.
and ashton was LOUD and needing to be taken out of service.
and avery was grumpy from being woken up from her nap and needing mommy to hold her. (she told me as i was rousing her from her slumber "i just want to keep taking my nap". first. time. ever.)

rest assured they were a whole bunch of adorableness in their grays, reds and blacks. ian in his polo. avery with her puffs. ashton with her mini pig tails and "fountain" in front. christmas eve attire is a beautiful thing.

avery and the drummer boy right after service....anytime that song would come on this christmas season, avery would run to her daddy and say "daddy this is your favorite song"

okay so mom had two HUGE stuffed animals to give the girls on christmas eve, she set them up under the tree and we had the girls come downstairs. avery bypassed her gift and ran to get the present she had picked out and wrapped for aunt rocio. she desperately wanted to give out that gift before even noticing her red-bowed christmas bear under the tree. precious.

Love those pizzas. Hope Avery had fun with the puzzles! Thank you again for your gifts! I still have some "molding" pictures to post!! Oh, and I do like the Starbucks in my regular coffee pot, it just didn't work in my "espresso" maker. I didn't want that post to sound like I was dissing Starbucks altogether! Have you ever tried Illy coffee? I heard it's pretty good for espresso. KO
