Christmas Eve

I have had a GREAT Christmas eve! This morning I made some Sugar cookies dough and invited Dion and Summer and kids over to help us decorate them. I love decorating Christmas cookies. Before we had a kids I spent hours decorating them, I loved spending a lot of time with each cookie, making it pretty and special. I don't have quite that luxury any more, but its still lots of fun. Here are the ones we are leaving out for Santa.

And the day got better when in the middle of decorating cookies in walked my husband (who I thought was working all day) with my father-in-law and my entertainment center!! That's right, I got it, its here, and its BEAUTIFUL! Here is a quick before and after shot.

Then to top that off my in-laws and my brother-in-law came over for dinner, the Christmas story, and singing Christmas carols around the piano. They were nice to indulge me with that one. I love singing songs around the piano, it really is one of my favorite things. It was a great day. Beth is SO excited about Santa and kept talking about it him bring our presents and dancing around. She even sang a new version of "Santa Claus in Coming to town." It went something likes this: "Better watch out, Better watch out, Better watch out, cause Santa is flying with reindeer to my hooouuuusse to bring presents to my Christmas tree." VERY CUTE! Anyway, we are now busy with our elf duties and enjoying the evening...Merry Christmas to everyone!
