Christmas Eve

Today is an exciting day for me. I get to bake goodies with my kids who are 6, 4, and almost 2, so you can imagine the fun this is going to be. I went to the store yesterday to get all the ingredients along with everything else we will be eating for the next week. What craziness! The kids were in bed when I got home, but all day yesterday they kept talking about making cookies. We are going to our church for a service at 4:30 and then headed over to my father-n-laws house to celebrate with the rest of my husbands family. It will be fun, we eat lots of food, play games and the kids open gifts. Then we come home and get ready for Christmas morning. The kids are so excited. I was remembering one Christmas morning my sister and I got up and to our surprise we found that Santa had left tracks from the fireplace to the tree. It was soooooo cool to wake up and see evidence other than presents that Santa had been there. We were just so shocked. Later, when I found out about Santa, I was talking to my Mom about the tracks left by Santa. She was so upset with my Dad for doing that. Evidently the soot didn't come out of the carpet very well and she cleaned that carpet many times before it looked clean again. Just another fun childhood memory. I can't wait to make a new memory this Christmas with my kids and family. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Birthday to Jesus!
