After 5:00 Mass at Cathedral, we headed home to host Christmas Eve. We had everyone over at our house! It was a little cozy..but definitely fun! We set up some tables in the basement for food. Later we brought back the Dice Game. Years ago we played it..and I thought it was time to return the tradition. The always entertaining game is always surprising when it comes to stealing. Of course, Uncle Bob's great outbursts are entertaining too! After the Nelson's and Schwiekerts left..we exchanged some of our gifts since Libby had to work Christmas Day. It was a great night.. the only thing missing was probably Auntie Linda and her gang!
Saturday morning we took the kids to the new Children's Musuem in Madison. They had a blast playing with so many things. One of the favorites was the giant human hamster wheel. Sydney was afraid to go by herself so Daddy went with.

Last night was Sydney's last daycare Christmas Program..and Mason's 1st. It's always such a blessing to take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle and it spend an evening with family, friends and beautiful children. It truly reminds us of we should take a moment to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
Before the program starts, they show a video slide show of pictures of the children from the daycare over the year. It's so adorable to watch them as they grow! This year Sydney was Mary. Each child puts an ornmaemnt on the tree. Then of course they sing and some dance! You gotta love it!
