Well, it's 1:30 am and sticking to tradition, Ross and I are still awake finishing presents!
We started today with the annual Bartels Kids Last Minute Present Run.... That took a better part of today. But I had a great time! It's one of the only times that my broskies and I spend a lot of good time with each other. We successfully finished all shopping marking everyone off of our list

After all of our shopping, we went to Christmas Eve Services. One with dad and one with mom ;) Thank goodness our pastor did a message worth hearing twice! He talked about how God's timing was perfect when it came to the birth of Jesus and how that same perfection of timing works with us; that God's timing is perfect. So refreshing!
After Church some close family friends came over. Their family and ours have so much fun together! Our Aunt Janet and Uncle Judy joined us too!
We had lots of yummy food and good wine. Then, we played some fun, loud games. I seriously LOVE games. They just make hanging out so much fun!!

After everyone left, Ross and I cam upstairs to finish (or start.... in Ross's case) our Christmas wrapping!
|Annabelle Definitely helped us :)|
