Christmas Eve

We did the usual Christmas Eve tradition: opening new jammies.

We took baths and made preparations for Santa. This year--ginger cake for the big guy and carrots for his reindeer.

We got the deets on Santa's visit from daddy. We had lots of questions.

One of them being . . .
Ian: Should we leave the fire on in the fireplace?
Daddy: Umm, what do you think?
And then the realization, and the evil grin . . .

We decided NO on leaving the fire going and placed Santa's treats neatly on the hearth.

We posed sweetly in front of the tree together, making mama think, "Maybe they DO love each other," or maybe they were just pretending for the sake of staying on the "nice" list.

Santa visited. Boy, did he ever. Thank you God for the gift of Jesus, for He is why we offer gifts to each other.


  1. I loved catching up on your last few days activities. Glad the sickness came....and went. Merry Christmas to you.

    I purposely put my camera away from the 24th-25th...just wanted to soak up the moments. I might regret it, but it was slightly liberating.

    New Years plans?

  2. Glad that your holiday was truly blessed!!!!

    Hope that your year this year is full of fun, learning, growth, and following in His footsteps!
