Lucy 358/365

Annie 358/365

Today I am thankful for everyone getting in town today! Holly and her family are still on the road, but Amy and Katy are here. The girls are beyond excited about everything going on. We set out the cookies and milk for Santa, set out some carrots for the reindeer, and sprinkled our magic reindeer food on the yard. Lucy is so into it. She didn't nap today, so she is in bed already. Annie was squawking before going to bed and Lucy told her, "You have to get quiet and go to night night if you want to open presents tomorrow."

We have a lot to do tonight to be ready for the morning. I want to wish everyone a very, very Merry Christmas. I hope that you are all having a wonderful time with family or friends. I made sure to talk with Lucy about tomorrow being Jesus' birthday because it is so easy to get wrapped up in the other side of Christmas and forget the importance of the day. She loves birthdays, so she loves to talk about Jesus' birthday.

There is just nothing like being on this side of Christmas with little ones. It is just a magical time for them. Hugs your family extra tight tonight.

So cute - and I love how everyone in the family has their own stocking!

How do you make reindeer sprinkles for the yard? I have never heard of that.

Merry Christmas!

I got a present from my former hostfamily from D.C. and it was stockings for me and my husbands - I love yours with those names on them!
