Christmas Eve Catch up

Bug and Bunny all dressed up

Christmas Eve dresses, even a matching one for Bunny!

Handsome big brother and Boo

Hope everyone had a wonderful blessed holiday. Our kiddos were thrilled with their goodies. Boo was really into Santa and her excitement was so fun ! Santa scaled way back this year and we focused more on the meaning of CHRISTmas then gifts, and it was nice. Lots of pictures so I will just get to it :)

Ohhhh what a cheeky monkey!!

Baking cookies for Santa (no Ketsup in recipe : )

Finding Santa's note on the door!

Every year my son spends all of December making pictures
and gifts to leave for Santa. He thinks it is nice to leave something for Santa for all he does for kids (How sweet!) When we leave to go to Nana & Pa-Pops house for Christmas Eve dinner,he leaves it by the door. A few times Santa has left him a thank you note along with the traditional new PJs for Christmas :) You can see the excitement on his face . So sweet! I love the innocent excitement!

Girls in their new pjs Christmas eve

If you read my Christmas blog post you know that we were pretty much up all night Christmas Eve.

It appears that your family had a wonderful Christmas and next year you'll be celebrating with one more member of your family. How exciting!

What great pics!! I LOVE the matching dresses!! Those are awesome - I hope to do that for Elyssa next year.

Hey, if you need an Amharic/English Dictionary, I have one that we never ended up using :-( I will send it to you, if you need one for your trip. Just let me know.

Glad you had a wonderful holiday. We did, too.
