Christmas Eve eve

Because of the schedule of our 2 oldest girls, Santa is coming by our house tonight. He has already arrived, dropping of highly anticipated gifts, snacking on cookins, and has sufficiently filled each stocking. The kiddies are all sleeping downstairs in Maddie's room, animately whispering about what they might get. I just went down to check on them, and I could see visions of American Girl dolls and pirate ships dancing in their heads. Even though our Christmas schedule is a little "off" this year, I am trying to make the best of it. And what kid alive isn't excited for Santa to come a little early??? It will be a FUN morning at our house, you can bet on that. I can remember many Christmases past of my sisters, brother and I snuggling up together the night before Santa came.; laughing, whispering, planning. Sometimes, I long for the simplicity and familiarity of those time. I'm so glad that I have kids who re-create those same simple moments for me. Merry Christmas everyone!!!
