All nestled and snug in their beds

This was our home on Christmas Eve...... An yes, I actually took pics of my kids asleep. :) I promise I didn't wake them!

Stockings hung by the chimney with care....
Cookies and pictures for Santa
I had to post Aubreys picture so you can read what she wrote with it. It says, "Santa could you give me a picher of Rudolph please? Your friend, Aubrey. P.S. I apresheate that you give us toys. Love Aubrey" And then by the little crease on the paper she wrote, "Sorry its bent."
Our Santa village. We started this village a couple of years ago and we go together as a family to pick out a new piece together every year. Its a fun tradition. The new piece this year is the tree with the elf riding a train around it.
A couple of our manger scenes
The front porch all lit up and pretty
Our home waiting for Santa to arrive!

You have a lovely home and a lovely family. I am sure that Santa was delighted with the pictures and notes....and I saw a plate of those good cookies waiting for him.

Did Santa leave Aubrey a "picher" of Rudolph? If so...I am sure that she did "apresheate" it.
