Christmas Eve!

Santa is on his way! The girls have come in periodically to check his progress as tracked by NORAD.

It snowed again last night and this morning. I don’t know how much has accumulated, but it’s over the tops of my boots now.

Some strange ice growths mysteriously appeared on our back porch over night.

The girls are very excited at the sight of all the presents under the tree.

This is the lovely snowflake ornament my cousin made for me from the Drops site.

The turkey is in the oven and I’m going in to make some pies right now.  At our home we open presents from friends and family after a big dinner on Christmas Eve.  In the morning we’ll open presents from Santa and then lounge all day in pajamas eating left overs. 

How does your family celebrate Christmas?

  1. We go to church Christmas eve after receiving an incredible package from our dear dear friend in frigid snow land, aka Heide. I was floored when I opened the box. You shouldn’t have, Sweetie. I was unable to pull myself together in time for Christmas, so have reverted to Easter;-) The shawl is absolutely amazingly gorgeous. You are a marvel. Mom was thrilled with the cookies. You know her well. Grover and Esau were unimpressed, but we loved their card (dumb kids). The peanut covered candy thing is evil and fabulous. We can’t figure it out. And, the pretzels are waiting for the weekend! Then, on Christmas we do all the pressies things. Have a wonderful day in your jammies. I’m doing that on Friday!Merry Merry Christmas to you and your entire clan!

  2. Merry Christmas to you, DH-B and the A’s!!!!

    Love ya,
    Susan, KH and Graham
