Christmas Eve

This is the one time each year that I get to set a place for Wyatt.  It always does my heart good to be able to do this once a year.  As we have our nice dinner that night we talk about our motto of "No Empty Chairs" and how Wyatt has filled his around our eternal table.  His place doesn't have a chair to remind us that he has filled his chair in heaven and we need to do all we can so that our chairs our filled there too.  I truly look forward to the day when we are all together around a table eating and laughing.  There is a void without Wyatt here on this earth that will never be filled until the next life. I sure look forward to that time when we are all together again.

We acted out the nativity this year.  Hay was especially excited to be Mary and hold the doll for baby Jesus. She got it all ready and picked out one of Wyatt's blankets to use. 
Wyatt always plays the part of the star.

After the nativity we always go to Wyatt's grave and sing silent night and leave candles on his grave.  The girls this year played their violins while we sang.  It was beautiful!

When we get home from Wyatt's grave there is always some presents waiting for us to open...PJ's!
We draw names every year and give a homemade gift to that person.  We open these gifts on Christmas eve. Such a fun tradition each year.

The boys in their matching PJ's.
