Merry Christmas Eve!


Merry Christmas Eve!

We've put food out for the reindeer -- (oatmeal with glitter, so the reindeer can find it)...

Had our Christmas dinner a day early (made by Ryan, Colin, and Rick) -- full of truly gourmet selections the boys made from scratch. They've really gotten into cooking!

Opened our traditional Christmas Eve presents (ornaments -- each year everyone gets one on Christmas Eve, so when the boys have their own house, they'll have ornaments to start out with). Mine for the past six years has been the annual Swarovski crystal snowflake:

And soon, Zack will be in bed, and I'll help Santa out by running out to the van to get hidden presents that need to be wrapped (in special paper that Zack hasn't seen under the tree yet).

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Solstice, and Happy Kwanzaa -- whatever you celebrate, I hope it's wonderful and shared with loved ones.

  2. Oatmeal with glitter so they can find it?!! That's the most imaginative thing I've heard in DAYS!

  3. Aw thanks! Zack was VERY excited about spreading that around, and was also VERY opinionated about WHERE it should go (front yard, NEVER back, because they won't go there, Mom, are you NUTS?)
