And the Stockings Were Hung....
Shhh, Santa is coming. Because we asked him really nice, he always comes to our house on the 24th instead of the 25th. We took a break from house painting today and commenced with Christmas preparations. Apparently, Santa wanted gingerbread houses this year instead of cookies. We worked diligently on those this morning, pulling out all the frosting and decorations we could find. After that Dad was the lucky one who got to take the kids to see a movie while Mom finished up a few last minute details. He said The Tale of Despereax was quite dreadful, but the kids still enjoyed the outing.
This evening brought the traditional Christmas eve present of new pajamas and a festive Christmas movie.
Sydney and I were a little tired I guess and were asleep before the movie ended. Leave it to my husband to snap of picture of me passed out cold. I did wake up long enough though to participate in the wrapping and arranging of the gifts. Thankfully that is a snap in our house as Santa doesn't wrap gifts. Instead he delivers them in color coded "Santa Sacks" which are made of fabric. All is quiet now, and I am ready to call it a night. I'm guessing tomorrow will be an early morning at our house.
