Christmas Eve

What a lovely morning.  No school to rush off to, the hubby is home from work.  We ALMOST thought we could sleep in just a little bit, but a little voice woke me at 7:57 am chattering on about stockings under the tree.  And sleepy time was over...um, ok.  So downstairs I went to find little Sam half snoozing on the couch and jacob and emmy messing with the stockings under the tree.  They are trying to find a place to hang them, but with 7 stockings, my mantle will surely fall off the wall!!  So we lay them under the tree and hope Santa fills them up!

What are your plans for the day?  We visited Koziar's last night (despite my saying I didn't want to go because it was SO COLD) and it was packed.  The kids loved it all..so it was good.  Then we came home and they all pretty much marched themselves off to bed.  We shared a drink and chat with our neighbor and then both of us were pretty ready for bed.  (late night last night building the dollhouse...shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)
So today the ham is basting in the crock pot and cranberry bread is baking in the oven.  We'll have our Christmas meal today, then it's off to work for me.  Hubby will have to get everything out without me..so when I come home in the morning it all will be under the tree.  With any luck the kiddies will be sleeping yet, but i doubt it!  Then it will be time for the Christmas frenzy of unwrapping...some breakfast and off to bed for me.  The kids will have the day to play with their new toys and enjoy the day.

Hope  you all have a wonderful holiday with your family.  Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!!
