Christmas Eve and Day

Decorating cookies for Santa.

Christmas Eve Kisses :)

Happy Christmas Eve!

The tree before Santa.

Last year she was really too young. This year we started establishing some traditions. Tradition number one - New Christmas Pj's to be worn Christmas Eve. I bought these too late. Next year I will get us matching ones :) Tradition number two- Abby opens one present Christmas Eve. She picked it herself. Tradition number three (earlier)- Decorating cookies to put out for Santa.

She is so smart. She knew it was a book before she opened it.

Note to self. Next year the cat needs a present to open too:)

Cookies and Milk. Chocolate milk per her request.

Carrots and water for the reindeer.

Santa was here :)

Visions of sugar plums............

First look. There were no words..... :)

Glass slippers!

Checking out doll house from Santa.

Stocking time. First up her Magic Wand. Boy that Santa is good :)

Make up! (Dora chap stick) Easily one of her favorite gifts that day :)

On to the gifts :)

About half way through the gift unwrapping she asked me if Santa was still here. I told her no and she said, "But I didn't get to ride in his sleigh." :)

Santa even got me Pizza!

Dr Abby :)

Meema and Da's house. Santa had been there too!

It was pure mayhem over at Meema's so Mommy only snapped a few blurry pictures.

Back home again. The aftermath...

Pooped :) She woke up the next morning and wanted to know if it was Christmas again :)

Hannah doesn't quite understand Christmas is over either!

I love Abby's Christmas day dress - it is gorgeous. And nice to see a photo of the two of you together too.

Looks like you had a wonderful day.
