We started with a Christmas Eve tradition of baking cookies for Santa.
And we read the Christmas story with a fun little activity from Family Life called What God Wants for Christmas. You read the story and open up each box as the story progresses. The last box has a mirror inside because that's what God wants for Christmas….YOU!
Some of the cookies we baked helped keep their attention on the story. :)
The girls went to bed, then Santa came!
And of course Santa couldn't bring an extra gift for Adeline and not Annabel!
I think this bounce house is going to do wonders for our sanity on the many long, cold winter days ahead.
Mommy and Daddy gave each of them three gifts.
Annabel: Snow White dress, personalized plate, & a fairy treehouse with figurines.
Adeline: Cinderella dress, Hello Kitty sticker activity book, & a Fur Real kitty cat.
Daddy got a helicopter he can control with his iPhone, some shirts, and a gift certificate for a concealed handgun license course.
We ate a yummy breakfast with our fun plates and new cups that were in their stockings.
It's a good thing Adeline told Santa what she really wanted, because this horse has by far been her favorite toy.
My loot: a new Hobo wallet, necklaces, leggings, and a Victoria's Secret gift card.
We plan to spend the day at home just playing with our toys and enjoying each other's company. What a happy happy day!
