Christmas Eve 2009 Part II

2009 12 24_8094_edited-1

When we arrived home from Granny's house the kids put on their new Pajamas and gathered in by the tree for their gifts from Mom and Dad. Every year we get them an ornament that will relate to them or the year we have had. This year we did a "lodge" them as we all went to The Great Wolfe Lodge earlier in December. It was a trip that the kids will remember for quite awhile. We also have a visitor who comes by our house almost every Christmas Eve, SANTA! So while we were headed out to put out the reindeer food we saw the red suited man in our front yard. The Princess didn't quite know what to think at first but he truly had her wheels turning.

Arden checking to see if Santa got off okay.
We counted our blessings as we finally laid our heads down that night and remembered why we celebrate this Awesome Holiday! Thank you Father for the very best gift of all, Your Son!

Arden was so cute as she watched Santa. I'm guessing that the Dora scooter request was made a bit late?
