Christmas Eve

This year we had a busy Christmas Eve...we started our day with a family get together in Ferndale with Ben's family. After a wonderful dinner, and gift exchange we headed to our candle light service at church! Wonderful, it's always a treat to hear Katie VanKooten sing. After church we went to the Stauffer house for our family gift opening and late night snacks! Every year we say "okay we don't need a lot of snacks, but something savory, and little something sweet..." well we ALWAYS make too much and this year was no different! But that's what the holidays are for right? Landen had been dying to open presents pretty much as soon as they were placed under the tree...we don't really do the whole "Santa" thing in our family...the kid knows it's all of us who spoil him rotten! Here is the little pumpkin waiting with his dad to open was about this time that he yelled into the kitchen "Can we open presents NOW?"

When Landen opened this present he knew exactly what it was, he had to explain to grandpa-grandpa what a pillow pet was! He even gave us a complimentary "Moo" for this picture!

These are his new flashlights that grandpa-grandpa picked out for him...Landen LOVES "ashlights!" These ones are pretty fancy...even the big boys (dad, Ben and Darren) had to check these out...they work like a regular flashlight, the entire stick lights up orange like a flare and the entire stick flashes orange.

Spoiled or not...Landen always gives thank you hugs...he was dishin' them out a lot over the holidays!

We had a great night....until next Christmas Eve...and then there will be TWO Stauffer kiddos to spoil!!
