Christmas Eve

We began our Christmas evening at the temple to view the lovely Christmas lights. It was cold, or maybe we're sissies. It was nice viewing several nativities from all over the world.

Next we headed to Grandma and Grandpa's for food and fun. We baked pizza, listened to Christmas music, and ate junk food. Auntie Lindsey brought gingerbread cookies to decorate and eat. Tuck enjoyed himself, he's very detail oriented and was a pro at frosting. Where was Tatum?

Here, pouting...saying she looked ugly in her new jammies. She didn't, she looked darling and so snuggly. She must have sat there a good hour before she finally snapped out of it. Tuck soon complained of a stomach ache. Not surprising, he'd been stuffing his face full of cookies and junk since we walked in the door. He said it was a sugar stomach ache. He begged to leave which meant it really hurt.
Before they could go to bed they had business to attend to. First came the sprinkling of reindeer food. Glitter to attract the reindeer's attention and oats for them to smell and eat after they land. Sprinkle, sprinkle.

Tuck was in charge of Rudolph. He took his job very seriously and insisted the plate be left outside, he did not want a big reindeer booty in our house.
Tatum was in charge of Santa. She decided 5 cookies would do the job.

How cute are they in their new Christmas jammies! This little tree has turned into their tree where they hang their personal ornaments. They think it's pretty cool they have their very own Christmas tree! Off to bed, pretty sure we hear Santa's sleigh bells!
