Christmas Eve

Waiting for Santa to arrive
LaRocca Family Christmas Eve

Colten and Carmelo making a break for it!

C'mon Carmelo, let's go!

We have been blessed with some pretty amazing friends. Vincent and Kelli are two people that include our family in pretty much everything they do! We have bonded over kids, football, and life. They have two little boys that are Colten's age and they get along really well! They make us feel welcome and like part of the family. We probably spend every weekend with them and often get together during the week. We really don't know what we would do without this friendship. So, they invited us to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Dinner with them. We were pretty excited! Christmas is a really special time for me and my family. We love it!! It was really hard for me to be away from the family this year and being around friends really helped that.
So, Christmas Eve is when Santa arrives and passes out present at the LaRocca's house. We went outside and sang Christmas carols and waited for Santa to arrive. He comes in thru the front door and all the kids are so excited!! The presents giving commences and it was a mad house for a good couple of hours. It was great!!! We had a blast and Santa even found Colten there! Once again, so blessed to have the whole LaRocca family in our life!!
