Eva really wanted to make gingerbread cookies. We discovered that she is a whiz with a pastry bag!
Between gingerbread cookies, treats for the neighbors, and our Christmas Eve dinner, I was in the kitchen all day!
We read the Christmas story from the scriptures and did our gifts to the Savior. I was surprised to find when I opened up my little red box that we have now been doing this for 6 years! One of the best things I have ever done, it has really changed my life for the better.
When all the dishes were done and the kids had finally gone to bed, I got to play Santa.
I really love that my mom sends things for my stocking. Stockings are my favorite!
Eva considered writing Santa a note and telling him that we had plenty and he didn't need to stop by our house this year. Seriously.
I went to bed at midnight! I consider that a victory on Christmas Eve. I love going to bed on Christmas Eve, knowing that the children will wake to happy surprises.
