Christmas Eve

This year we headed out to our church for their Christmas Eve services.
Childcare was available for kids 2 and under (thank God!), but Treyton stayed with us. This is not normal for him as he usually attends Sunday school. Our church gave out little treat bags with some crayons and stuff to help with the older kiddos. Treyton was interested in what was going on up front for the first part of the service, feeling pretty grown up to be attending with Mommy and Daddy. The choir sang; the worship team sang; don't you just love Christmas songs? Time to bust out the snacks.
Then they had a little "children's sermon" for all the kiddos. Here's my guy in the mesh of children.
Of course, when the actor guy came out he got scared shouting, "Mommy, mommy, I don't like that man!" So I headed up.
After that scene it was back to our seats. Snacks were gone, sick of coloring, so we go into the toys Mommy brought by request. He wanted to play with the Nemo and Little Mermaid figures from the kids' joint b-day I had for them. Cute party theme, don't ya think...Nemo and Ariel? The highlight of Christmas Eve services was and will forever be the candles. This year we let Treyton hold his own candle. Here comes the flame being passed down the aisle.
Oh boy! Oh boy!
And there he is with the wonder of Christmas written all over his face!
The kind gentleman to my right offered to take a picture. Such a nice man.
I love to peer around the church at this point. It's always so beautiful; it takes my breath away.Silent night, holy night. Heavenly peace.
