Christmas Eve 2007
Finally... "Santa is coming TONIGHT!!!" exclaimed Angelia. She has been so excited for Santa's arrival... asking every day, "Mommy, is today Christmas?" So-- today, at least, I got to give her the good news that Santa AND Aunt Toni & the kids were coming!
We spent Christmas Eve at home with family. Mike's sister, ToniAnn, and our niece & newphews came in from AZ on Christmas Eve and all of Mike's family met here for dinner, etc. to kick off the holiday. We had a great time & everything went smooth-- thank goodness! We even had another surprise visitor... SANTA! he arrived (for the 1st time around) a little earlier than expected. We heard continuous fire sirens and figured out that Santa was out & about in the neighborhood... he was coming around on the firetruck! When he finally made it over to our street, we all gathered outside and got to see him. That was nice.
Before bed, Angelia had to leave a snack for Santa, so she left 3 sugar cookies and chocolate milk... enjoy Santa! As you can see, the babies were also very excited at bed time... even though they had no clue what they would be waking up to in the morning! :)
