On Christmas Eve, we headed over to Aunt Pat's house (Doug's family) and had a wonderful time eating too much and playing card games; all the while Little Julianne was oo-ed and ah-ed over! We left there and made the trip back to our house so we could prepare for Santa to come...which included tossing the reindeer food Dallas brought home from school.
We then set out a plate of cookies and milk for Santa, and a few carrots for the reindeer.
Dallas and Reba first looked in their stockings, and then I wanted a picture with the presents. They chose to sit in front of the ones Santa left, not the ones under the tree...
*excuse Dallas with his shirt half opened. I think he was going to change out of his church clothes, but then decided it would take to long and delay the present opening!
Santa brought them each a portable DVD player and headphones to use in the van - a perfect thing to have on our upcoming Iowa trip!
*Momma has since reassembled above said tractors multiple times each day :)
Overall, we had a wonderful day at home enjoying the blessings God has provided us.
Until next time...
