Twas the Day Before Christmas . . .
We had a wonderful Christmas Eve 2008. After our lovely brunch, we came home to get ready for the big night and day tomorrow. The kids and I kept track of Santa's journey on NORAD throughout the day. It was so neat to introduce the kids to different cultures through Santa's journey and the pictures and videos we could watch for each city. We will be there again next year. We were blessed to be able to attend church services with our big family and friends that night. When we came home from church it was time to get to bed! We checked to see where Santa was, got in our Christmas pjs (brought to us by the Disney Store this year), read Twas the Night Before Christmas, put out reindeer food, wrote Santa a letter (last year he made a HUGE mess of the cookies and oatmeal for the reindeer, so Laura Beth asked him to please not spill this year!) and got our stockings ready for him to fill. This year we left cookies we had made as well as a Dr. Pepper for Santa. We thought he might be tired of milk! Off to bed we go to see what will come in the morning!
