The night before Christmas...

posted on: 12.27.2009

and all through the house, creatures were stirring, and eating, and laughing, and acting.
the children (and fantastic worshipping wisemen) put on a great nativity. Tate made her first acting debut as the angel, and was darling (although she did nothing).
she was loving her "crown" halo
we were loving just spending time together
This year we spent Christmas Eve at Great Grandma Rhoda's (Wyatt's grandma). It was cozy, casual and relaxed and we loved it.
Once home, we quickly got Tate in her new elf like Christmas jammies and got Santa's plate of cookies and milk ready...

Earlier in day we made the cookies together and Tate was sure Santa would want 5 cookies on his plate. Later that afternoon she got hungry and decided he'd be fine with just 4.
He was:)
This year the whole cookies and milk thing was the highlight of Christmas for Tate. She was so excited about making them, putting them out, and seeing if he ate them in the morning.

In fact, she cared more about the fact that Santa did in fact eat 3 1/2 of them, and all his milk in the morning, than she was about her brand new suitcase sitting pretty right next to the almost empty plate.
silly kid.
