christmas eve

twas' the night before christmas, when all through the house...

the douglas girls were making some last final touches before santa came to visit. they started off by baking some cookies in the oven for the jolly fat guy to enjoy later in the night. once the cookies were baking, abby and lyla headed outside to the front yard in order to sprinkle some food out for santa's reindeer. they need a snack too since they have a super busy night ahead of them. here are some pics...the girls came back inside where their auntie jess read to them a bedtime story which was of course, "the night before christmas." even baby jem-jem got to sit in her lap as she sucked down her bedtime bottle. the cookies were almost done baking, but first abby and lylie wanted to write a letter to santa. lylie said she wanted to draw a picture of an elf and that's exactly what she did while big sister wrote the letter. teamwork at it's finest. here are some pics...finally the cookies were done along with all of the final preparations before bedtime. the girls left their letter and drawing beside a plate of cookies and a glass of eggnog for santa to find once he climbs down the chimney. we tucked them into bed and once santa was absolutely positive that they were asleep, he started unloading their presents and polishing off the cookies and eggnog. oh what a fun christmas eve it was...
