on of our favorite days of the year is finally here!
the magic and the miracles.
we love it all.
of course these two needed a picture too.
riley is so sleepy here...she is holding back a really big yawn.:)
misplaced that all important part of our tripod.
the part that holds the camera.
after church we gathered around for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner...
fondue and appetizers.
dave tried a new pigs in a blanket recipe this year....super yummy!!:)
of course we had to pause our Christmas music to track santa's every move.
he's getting closer.
next it was new ornaments and jammie time.
i love tara's tradition of an ornament every year....so now it's our tradition too.:)
i got the girls one of those hand painted one from pier one.
these girls wanted to snuggle up and listen to the night before Christmas too.
i feel like i have to clarify a photo like this...4 of these dolls the girls bought with their own money...they saved for a year for each.:) my parents bought each of the girls a bitty baby when they were 2 and the big girls a just like me doll the Christmas before aubrey was born.
santa brought the twins...that's it!:)
cookies and letters are left by the fireplace.
and sleepy girls are ready for bed.:)
we decided to let riley and janey have a sister sleepover...we will see how that goes.:)
see you in the morning,
