Christmas Eve 2012

Helena, Seamus and Katie 
The kids had been so excited the whole month of December for Christmas. By the time it was Christmas Eve the kids we got a down to business. We started out the morning with the kids putting out  the food for the reindeer.

 After making sure Rudolph wouldn't go hungry, we exchanged gifts with Aunt Kathy Murphy who was staying with us from NC.

After exchanging gifts, Aunt Kathy Murphy went to spend the day and Night over Grandma and Grandpa  Murphy's house. Mary, the kids and I later went to Church and then to Grandma and Grandpa Huddas' house for a traditional Slovakian Christmas Eve dinner and Gift exchange. Even Santa stopped by to get last minute Christmas wishes from the kids and read "T'was the Night Before Christmas." What a swell guy...

After the long night of gifts and fun, it was time to get the kids home and in bed before Santa came to our house. The kids were good and exhausted and fell right to sleep. That was good, because we had another busy Day ahead of us.
