Merry Christmas Eve to everyone!!!!
We have been doing our last minute running around as usual today. We made our first gingerbread house. The kids really got into decorating it and it turned out great!! I think they ate more of the decorations than they actually put on the house though.
We baked some sugar cookies for Santa and and wrote him a letter and drew him some pictures. We left milk and cookies out for him and water and carrots for the reindeer. Spencer must really think he is hungry as he left a bunch. We let them open a present tonight too......flashing toothbrushes. We sang Christmas carols and then read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and tucked all the littles ones in bed to have "visions of sugarplums dance in their heads". When we came downstairs we discovered the dog had EATEN all of Santa's cookies, I was not impressed. Then I came into the kitchen to find what was left of our gingerbread house. He had eaten all the trees and a bunch of candy and there was lick marks all over it. Needless to say he is outside now. Bob and I are going to finish wrapping and put the presents out for tomorrow morning.
Wait...........I think I hear Santa coming.
May Santa bring you all you desire for the coming year!!!
