Merry Christmas Eve

December 24, 2012

I can’t believe that it’s really Christmas Eve. How on earth did Advent go by so quickly, not to mention this year.

Today is our day to be together. To unplug from the “stuff” that is part of our normal everyday life. We limit the internet usage and the electronics and make a conscious effort to do things together…all of us together.

There was some block building…admittedly a surprise for Nate & I after we woke from our afternoon nap. (Needless to say we’ve pulled some seriously late nights lately.)

A fire to enjoy, but really “secretly” a reason to roast marshmallows and enjoy some homemade s’mores.

Eating all day long…appetizers and all things lovely! We had cheese sticks, cookies, crackers and dip & a cheese platter, cornbread muffins, fruit, chips & homemade salsa…all sitting out…all day long…perfect for all day grazing.

(Sugar cookies compliments of Katie…start to finish. I love my baking comrades!)

Clare especially loved Michael’s cornbread muffins.

Letters left for Santa. (I have to get a good image of Katie’s. It was so sweet.)

Katie was so delighted to get some one-on-one time with Aunt Anna. Anna helped accessorize Katie’s Christmas outfit and brush and blow dry her hair for an early morning. So sweet!

Baby Jesus sleeps with the kids so he can be laid in the manger first thing upon waking in the morning. I love this!!

Goodnight to all and to all a good night.
