Christmas Eve Day

After a bit of last-minute gift shopping last night, we took a tiny light-tour of our neighborhood. And when we got home, a snowball fight broke out. My girls love the snow. My 4 year old even decided to lay down for an impromptu snow angel. (Seconds later she was soaked from the snow.) And I was snapping pictures as the whole thing went on. The funny thing is, it was dark, so I couldn't see much--until I loaded the pictures onto the computer. And among the dark snowy pics, there is a photo of my youngest eating snow! I have told her to not eat the snow because who knows what dog has peed where, etc. but I guess she couldn't resist. She thought her secret was safe in the darkness of Christmas Eve's eve. (Think again you little sneak!)

I am so excited about Christmas! I still get that happy-little-giddy-butterflies in my tummy-Christmas day-feeling every year, just like I did when I was a kid. Although, having my OWN kids, it's even MORE fun now! But before all that holiday happiness can happen, it's gonna be a busy Christmas Eve day. Here's a peek at my 'to-do' list:

*finish making Christmas gifts (this last-minute stuff happens every year it seems)
*finish wrapping gifts (just a few--not too many!)
*make rice krispie treats (it's my dad's favorite treat)
*make caramel corn (yay for a speedy microwave recipe!!)
*go to grocery store to get ingredients for caramel corn & rice krispie treats
*return last night's videos
*pick up some stocking stuffers for Mr. WhiMSy love
*sit with a cup of marshmallow stuffed cocoa & listen to some holiday tunes
*visit some REAL reindeer (I'm serious!)
*make a wreath (I know. Kinda late. But I didn't have one this year & I really want one.)
*charge camera batteries

(I also hope to get in some sledding this evening with the girls.)

If I don't get a chance to say it later: Have a supa dupa Merry Christmas!!!!


  1. is that your house? it's so cool!!!

    looks like you had an awesome christmas!

  2. No, it's not our house. I don't think Mr. WhiMSy love would want to go to all that work (bummer). It's a house in our neighborhood though!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Every time you do, I do a little happy dance. For reals.
