Choosing our favorite ornaments for tree-decorating
Fun with older siblings
Twinkle, twinkle ...
Hilarity and entertainment at said Christmas programs
The Christmas card portrait (This year, Tootie drew Ty since he's away at Coast Guard training) Note artwork hanging on mantle. Each year, Tootie makes new mantle decor!
Trip to in-laws before Christmas
Trip to my parents' home, usually after Christmas
Carrots for reindeer, cookies for Santa (We make and decorate cookies on Christmas Eve) Again, note mantle decor.
Sneaking a little frosting from Santa's cookies. So far, this hasn't landed her on the naughty list.
Secretive, late-night toy assembly (usually involves some un-Christmaslike language)
Coffee for disheveled parents, still sleepy from toy assembly. Not pictured — Christmas-morning cinnamon rolls. Yum.
