Christmas Eve in Pictures

We wished you all could have been here to share Christmas Eve with us, but since you weren't here are a few pictures of our day.

We saw The Golden Compass. It was great, and we can't wait to see the next one. We'd definitely recommend it. It was our first Christmas Eve movie together, ever!!

Lindsay cooked the big Christmas meal, with some key help form Nick of course. We had ham with cherry glaze, cheese grits, twice baked potatoes with blue cheese and thyme, green bean casserole, rolls, peanut blossoms, and cut-out cookies!

We set the table with our fine china, flatware, and crystal (for the first time!) and of course our advent wreath. Since we don't have a proper dining room, we set it up in the living room.

Nick thoroughly enjoyed the meal, and to be honest, Finlay did too.

The Christmas Eve church service ended outside, in front of a live manger scene. Cool...and very cold, but we did get to sing Silent Night while holding little white candles so it felt somewhat complete.
