Christmas Eve must be the longest, but shortest day in
the whole year. The kids can not wait for it to be
Christmas Eve, but at the same time can not
wait for it to be over.
We started our day out nice and early with a drive
to the big city. We needed to make a stop
at Whole Foods to get some fresh sea food and
a few other things!
After we got back home we did some house building.
We each got to build our own gingerbread house.
Putting the house together was a very big job and
the kids took it very seriously.
Most of the candy went into little tummies
and not on the houses.
Next the kids made cookies for Santa!
This year we went with oatmeal raisin cookies.
The last few years we have done the
feast of seven fishes, but this year we
took a break. We did just one of our
favorite dishes that we make during the feast.
The winner was
Linguine con le Vongole!
It was amazing!!!
That night Rudolph did a little ringing and running
and dropped off a gift for each of us.
One year we will be able to catch a glimps of that
red nosed reindeer.
Once again he gave us all new Christmas PJs!
Trying to get a nice picture of them all together
can be a little hard! Not sure what one is the
biggest ham ball in the family yet.
I may be the fixer of boo boos, homework help,
the cook, and personal assistant of this little girl,
but she is a big Daddy's girl!
They may drive each other crazy, but they love
each other even more!
Daddy read the kids the book that Rudolph had
dropped off for us.
Then it was time to leave out the cookies and
egg nog for Santa.
(I voted for wine)
Some carrots for the reindeer!
Then it was off to bed for the little ones!
Mr. PC and I had a lot
more work that we needed to do!
We ended the night as we always do
watching It's a Wonderful Life.
Then it was off to bed for us and hoping that
the little ones would sleep in just a little!
