Christmas Eve consisted of buying new dressers for our Christmas from our parents and grandparents (thanks so much!!) and then the boys planted a tree in the backyard,
then we drove over to Senske and watched the light display to music, then had lasgna dinner, saw elves peeking in the window, and then family time. We sang songs, played pass the orange (with your chin), did the nativity story with puppets, and talked about Jesus, then sang more songs. The boys went to bed quickly, and then we had fun helping Santa get his stuff down the chimney and all set out.
Santa came alright! Colty was most excited to see if Santa ate his cookies and drank his chocolate milk!
Santa stepped right in the pile of flour left on the floor. We got him!
The first dumping of the stocking is where the magic of Christmas begins!
The boys made a haul. We all did, really. It was so fun to have Christmas in our home, and to have everyone here.
Then, the boys played with their toys the rest of the day.
|Grandpa is the best sport. He and Braden played "Eat" for at least an hour. They ate every pretend food you can imagine, even adding salt to their ice cream. Braden loves Grandpa better than anyone, no wonder!|
|I think Auntie was more excited about some of the toys than the boys were!|
We also rode scooters, played dominoes, danced with the Wii and of course ate WAY too much food, but isn't that the holidays are all about!?!
