Elfie brought good news this morning!
We were hoping Julia and Audrey made the "Nice List", but it was great to have confirmation. They talked about going to bed by 7 pm all day long. So around 6:45 they went to sprinkle reindeer food outside. Reindeer food, in case you aren't aware, consists of oatmeal and glitter.
They also hung up these fancy snowflakes that Meme and Pop gave them. The snowflakes light up to help guide Santa to your home. This is extra important if you've changed addresses since his last delivery.
You can't really see the snowflakes, but they're hanging from eye hooks at the top of the porch. Mommy is such a great photographer than instead of getting a picture when both snowflakes are lit up (they blink), she wound up getting several pictures where neither of them are lit. They really are blinking - PROMISE! - even several hours later as I type this.
Santa's snack tonight includes store bought sugar cookies and homemade (by Matt) boiled custard. They girls also put another snack (carrots) out for the reindeer.
Going to bed at 7 didn't actually happen. We played a little GO FISH instead.
Then they headed to bed... except they ran to the wrong bed thinking sweet smiles could get them what they wanted. They were mistaken. :)
15 minutes after getting in their own beds, they were arguing loudly. Instead of yelling, Mommy decided to pull up a Santa Tracker. He was in Ireland and would soon be crossing the Atlantic Ocean!!! Julia and Audrey didn't make a peep after that information was discovered!
Ho! Ho! Ho!
