My parents came to us this year for Christmas and it was great being with family in our own little home. On Christmas Eve my mom always makes our traditional Christmas cinnamon roll to eat Christmas morning. This year the girls decided they wanted to make their own to leave out for Santa.
Ellie set up her cinnamon roll along with milk and cheese (cheese is for Santa Mouse – a favorite Christmas story) and also made a tower for Santa out of her blocks. When she started laying it all out on the floor by the fireplace I asked her what she was doing and told her to set it on the table. She said “Mom! Santa comes down the chimney. This is where he will see it first!” Oh yeah….duh.
Addison when she first saw everything Santa left…AND Addison after she tried on her Barbie Diamond Castle dress and decided it wasn’t long enough. Always a little drama when my two year old is involved!
Ellie was so excited about her castle and Tinkerbell dolls she just wanted to play instead of open more presents.
That’s a wrap!
Fun with friends (we always enjoying hanging out with the Robisons!)
And of course our traditional 84765 Christmas lunch get-together. These are my best friends from High School or I should say from my entire childhood (minus Liz and Mern…missed you two!). We Santa Clara girls all grew up together and will always be close friends. Now that we’ve scattered and live far away from each other we make sure to get together each year after Christmas to catch up. We somehow manage to pick up right where we left off and laugh at how we haven’t changed a bit over the years. Except for our hairstyles. :) Love you guys!
Happy New Year Everyone! Bring on 2009!!!
