It's Christmas Eve

It is Christmas Eve and Santa has already set up early this year. No princess kitchens or Wolf Mountains to assemble this Christmas Eve. Lucky for me, the kids asked for things that just had to be taken out of the box. Vaughn is working but hey, I am grateful for that one. (because that means he is healthy) This is going to be a much better Christmas than last year when all heck broke loose. I am even lucky enough to have my in laws and my brother-in-law Trey here for the festivities. We have just been blessed to have family for both Thanksgiving and now Christmas. It doesn't get any better than that.

My tree is my most favorite thing. Not many things can I claim as mine, due to the fact that I have children, but the tree, she is all mine. I love my Santa Clause decor.

We are rebels and give our Santa Coke and cookies instead of the traditional milk and cookies. I figured that Santa needs to have a little pick me up since he has to run all night long delivering presents all over the world.

On a side note, we were able to Skype with my brother-in-law Brett who is out on a mission in Mexico. He looked great and sounded just like a Mexican. His Spanish is well spoken. He was able to talk to all of us and the kids loved that the most. They haven't seen him in over 1 1/2 yrs. It was a real Christmas treat.

This Santa is going to bed. Let the games begin in the morning...
