this year is the first year that i'm not tucking the kids into their beds on christmas eve. they are with their dad this year. i really miss them but i'm happy for them that they get to spend this year with john, jess, will and even conner! :)
lisa and i got to spend a nice quiet night alone at home. we wrapped everything before 2 am which is such a plus. i thought i'd be really sad tonight but i wasn't. it was different but not sad. not at all. :)
this morning we got up and played with some of the new toys that the kids already got from family.
we also had alot of fun with google and with norad tracking santa throughout the day.
someone needs a haircut. ;)
i missed the focus on this...but i heart it so.
who doesn't love a little lens distortion?!
this is the look i get when i tell her to look at the camers....
i love that when she focuses she sometimes sticks her tongue out.
the kids made two letters for santa. one telling him that he could get whatever he wanted out of the fridge to drink. they wanted to leave something out for him with the cookies but since they were leaving for the day so early, i suggested a letter. the other was asking santa if he would glue the last cotton ball on ian's advent santa for him. :)
we left out some spice cookies. :)
isobel put the cookies by the tree for santa.
just before the kids left they wanted to read the elf on the shelf one last time. bailey asked if he could read it this time. :)
isobel is out of focus and ian HAD to have the crayons in the pic, but it's perfect. :)
