The boys were so excited for Santa. They asked if we could put flour at the bottom of the fireplace like we did last year, and then they thought that maybe it would be Dad that put his shoe in it instead of Santa, so to be sure the print was Santa's, Tanner wrote a note that said: "Name; Age; How are the cookies?" If he answered that he was Santa then for sure it was not Daddy. We left Oreos and milk out, and Colt had "magic reindeer food" that he sprinkled in the yard.
Of course Santa came, "Nicolas Claus age 1714" to be exact, and left his loot all over the family room. It was quite nice that it was just us. We took our time playing with things as we opened them and enjoyed just being with each other. We had crepes for breakfast then got ready for 1 pm sacrament meeting. The rest of the day was enjoyed just laying around in our pjs and playing games and figuring out our new toys. We missed family, but it was ok to just be us.
