So, it is Christmas eve. The kids are tucked into bed, the presents laid out under the tree. Milk and cookies have been placed for Santa; carrots for the reindeer. In all it has been a busy day and now it is time for a rest. Skating just seemed to be a needed return to tradition for this winter holiday, after which it was off to grabbing some last minute gifts before heading to a candlelight service in the evening. Then one gift each was passed around before we finished preparing for santa and getting ready for breakfast tomorrow.
Not to ignore a true tradition of our family … Owen decided that just before bed he would toss his cookies all over mom. Gee thanks Owen!
We are so excited for tomorrow … aren’t you?

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
