Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve we were very busy getting ready for the big day. We baked cookies for Santa, made reindeer food, wrote letters to Santa, opened the first present of Christmas and hung the stockings with care. Lucy was so excited about Christmas that she was up until 10 p.m. Wow! That's extremely late for her.


Mixing up some yumminess.

Stirring it up!


Cookie dough ready for baking. We all decided that Santa loves chocolate chip cookies most of all.


Sammy checking out the baking cookies.



The great taste test. They really were good!


Sammy's first chocolate chip cookie.



Sprinkling the reindeer food on the front lawn. For those not in the know, it's oatmeal, sugar, and a whole lot of glitter for the reindeer to snack on while Santa is filling the stockings.



Daddy helping with the reindeer food.


After sprinkling much of his reindeer food into Snowy (the polar bear), Sammy decided to dump it all on the front wall and smear it all around. Fun with sugary sparkles!


The first present of Christmas: a Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer DVD.



After writing the letters to Santa we set out the cookies and carrots (and ate another cookie each -- the taste testing was an all night job).



Lucy's letter to Santa.



Annabel dictated her letter to Santa.



Finally, we hung up the stockings.
