a not so picture-perfect (but still kind of perfect) night

Mia LOVED listening to the Nativity story !

Somebody (that would be me) thought it would be a good idea to go listen to the Nativity story and see the Christmas lights at the St. George Temple last night. It had kind of been a long day of family pictures, and hardly any sleep. Oops! But we met up with my parents and enjoyed listening to the story (Mia was totally into it! Not even kidding.) and walking around to see the lights. Of course there were tears any time I tried to get Mia to take a picture with us. And there were tears when Granddad wasn't holding her (someone was playing favorites and it wasn't fair to the rest of us)! And there were tears when we wouldn't let her run around and get into the lights anymore, ha ha. But hey, that's real life I guess! Next year I will make sure that Mia is well rested (and Eric is well fed) before we visit the Temple lights :) And even though it wasn't a picture perfect last night, I'm still loving these Christmas moments with Mia!
