Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve we took Raul to the church we grew up going to. We were nervous about how he would do when he started crying as soon as the organ started playing before church, but he calmed down, and was nearly perfect during church! When we got home we made homemade pizzas and fried artichoke hearts, which were very yummy. Raul enjoyed cruising around in his car (walker). After dinner we each opened one present (a couple for Raul), then played a game together. We read The Night Before Christmas, then Raul watched part of a Christmas Sesame Street movie before getting ready for bed. Luckily he fell asleep early, as today is a big day!

  1. What wonderful pictures! Raul is getting so big! I love the last picture of him in his hat and mittens; totally adorable! What a blessing that he is able to be with you and your family at Christmas, Caroline! I believe that God brought you into each other's lives as one another's angel; may God continue to bless you and Raul in the coming year! Thank you for sharing this blog - and your life with Raul - with us! :)
