Christmas comes early!

Due to a change in plans about where we will be spending the big day, my parents and I made arrangements to do our Christmas early this year. They made it in last night for a "traditional" dinner of appetizers and sweets galore. We finished most of the Christmas checklist prior to this weekend, including -

a visit to Santa (he's pointing to a piece of candy the photographer was holding up as a bribe to make him smile)

making a Christmas ornament (this one was made using a footprint painting Hank made at day care. I cut out the individual feet shapes to use for the reindeer face, then cut out his hand prints to use as the antlers)

baking cookies

opening a present on Christmas Eve, reading a Christmas book the night before, wearing new Christmas PJs,

and leaving cookies for Santa and carrots for his reindeer.

Hank was in shock this morning to come out and see all the presents Santa left for him and his family!

As BT and I will be going out to a holiday party this evening, I decided to do a Christmas lunch instead of a dinner. We did a Who-ville themed meal to go with the tree.

We had Roast Beast sandwiches, Who pudding, and more sweets to celebrate. Such a fun weekend, and to think we will have another Christmas to celebrate next week!

(Mama is still working on the annual knit Christmas hat. *Fortunately* I have a 12-hour drive to look forward to haha, so saving that project for when we are on the road.)


Favorite of the day: Love it all!

Working on: Oh, I forgot to mention that we will be doing another Christmas shindig tomorrow with the other side of the family. Christmas overload this year!
