picture from last year and the year before that and 2009 here! Wow! That was really fun to go back and look up those past Christmas posts and see how much we've changed!! :) And yes, I think I've worn the same red sweater every year... I think it is time to get a new red sweater!! : )
We got a couple of good pictures so I'll take what I can get!! : )
Here is our Christmas Eve Jammie shot!
The last thing for Ethan to help with was putting out the reindeer food!!! He loved it!!! So did Addyson, she made the food at school and was excited to spread it out. Owen, not so much!!! He stayed inside, can you see him peaking out of the window, he told me he was scared! I think he is always afraid he is going to run into Santa!
I kept saying "last thing" and then I would remember something else... there is just SO much to do Christmas Eve!! : )
The very last thing Ethan did was watch his video message from Santa!!! Santa sent each child their own special message and we all gathered to watch each one!
All of the kids (and even the adults) really got into the videos!!! Even Ethan watched intently!!! When one of the bigger kids got in his way he would push them over so he could watch!
Santa talks about the child, where they live, what they asked for, what their mommy and daddy asked them to do this year to be good, and then Santa checks to see if you were good or not. Owen heard he made the "nice" list and he started jumping up and down giving us High Fives and saying "Yes! Yes! Yes! I made the"Nice" list" It was SO cute to watch his excitement!
FINALLY, it was time to eat dessert!!! : )
They loved it!
Owen wrote the note we left "Dear Santa, I hope you like the cookies we made"
