Christmas Eve we dressed in our best and headed to the candlelight service at my parents' church, but not before a small photo shoot. Morgan Kate wore a darling little dress with the nativity scene smocked on it. It was a special gift from Kaky and GDaddy.

After the candlelight service we headed over to Mammie's for our annual Christmas Eve dinner. Mammie has had us over for Christmas Eve for as long as I can remember. And this amazing woman cooks all of this amazing food.

While at Mammie's, Morgan Kate decided to try on Jillian's Christmas hat. It was so, so cute! And then, what's a night without dancing? MK is a dancing queen these days and decided to show us all a few moves while on top of Mammie's new microwave.

MK thoroughly enjoyed her dinner

On Christmas morning Morgan Kate was wide-eyed. She was fascinated by all of her gifts, but some of her favorites proved to be the tissue paper and empty boxes.

One toy she actually seemed to enjoy playing with was the pretend food. She plays with food similar to this at speech and she loves it. Santa was able to find her some and Morgan Kate fell in love!

Travis and I received so many great gifts as well, but our most precious gift continues to be our beautiful baby girl.

And the night ended with Kaky pulling Morgan Kate and Tommy around in a box. Aren't boxes the best?

We had an amazing Christmas and I am so sad to see it end. I hope that each one of you experienced the same!

The candelight service was awesome as always. We go to it every year. Each year is different but special. Saw your mOM but did not see you guys. You must have sat in the balcony. MaMa and I use to sit in the balcony but the last few years MaMa has difficulty going up and down those stairs with all those people. Looks like you,Travis and MK had a great Christmas.

The smocked nativity dress is so cute. I love that. It was definitely have to be one you keep for her...or future Callahan baby girls to wear.
