During the day on Christmas Eve, the girls each made their treats for Santa. We always let them pick what they want to make and they get to do a half-recipe of it. Sierra tends to play it safe with tried and true recipes. This year, it was pumpkin cookies:
We had our big Christmas dinner with extended family a few days ago, so we stuck with pizza for Christmas Eve. The kids loved it and it was easy for us. After dinner, it was time for presents.
Josh and I both put together numerous model cars when we were little, and Josh wanted to get Sierra started on making them too. He bought her a snap together model to start with and they started putting it together as soon as the little girls went to bed (she finished it today)
Eventually, treats were put out for Santa and all the children were tucked snug in their beds. Unfortunately, Sedona had been complaining of a sore throat on Christmas Eve and she woke up in the middle of the night not feeling well. She's definitely sick and has a high fever today. The excitement of waiting for Christmas will not be diminished by illness though. Early in the morning, we were all back downstairs to see what Santa left in our stockings.
With all of the presents and stockings opened and new toys spread all over the living room, it was time to put the cinnamon rolls in the oven. I make them on Christmas Eve and put them in the refrigerator. In the morning, they just need to be baked and we have ooey gooey fresh cinnamon rolls as a Christmas morning treat.
