Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve Christmas Eve started with a party thrown by the Jackie and Molly. Corey had fun playing with the kids and running around. We left after a little while so that we could get home and embark on our own Christmas Eve traditions before Corey fell asleep.

We got home and I made some cookie dough, rolled it out, and we got to cutting out Christmas shapes. Corey tested the cookies before, during, and after cooking them. It was determined that they would pass Santa’s inspection. So, we put out a plate for him and crawled into bed so he could come visit.

Decorating for Christmas

decorating for Christmas 2010

Normally we decorate for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving. This year I had to have Corey’s birthday party that weekend, so there was no decorating for us, except that Sunday. So, decorating actually took place over the course of the next week. Corey, of course, had to add dinosaurs into the mix, and he grouped ornaments together so they wouldn’t be lonely. I was brave and put glass ornaments on this year, and we only had one casualty.
