Pajama Days and our Christmas Eve

Preschool Pajama Day was Tuesday.

Kindergarten pajama Day was Friday.

... and since I'd just taken a picture of Julia, Audrey wanted to take one too.

Soon after Julia left for school, I showed Audrey her video from Santa. She wasn't sure what to expect, but she wound up loving it. We watched it 5 or 6 times in all. Santa said she was on the "nice" list, but she needed to stop throwing those silly tantrums. I had to explain what tantrums were.

When Julia got home from school, I showed her her video from Santa

This is the look she gave when Santa told her to "be nice to her sister" - so guilty!

Fortunately, she wound up on the Nice list too!

Later Friday afternoon, we met Matt to look at the Park's Christmas lights and decorations. We'd played there the night of the Christmas parade, but I'd promised the girls we'd go back.

Audrey wouldn't slow down part of the time to take pictures. She was running and running and running. This is the best shot I got of her.

Now, Santa had to come early for us since we're traveling, so Friday night was actually our family's Christmas Eve. We enjoyed fine dining of Papa Johns pizza (Julia has recently decided that she likes pizza and has been begging to eat it!) After pizza, we had a delicious dessert of reindeer food, then we went outside to throw out a different kind of reindeer food! This magic reindeer food (oatmeal and glitter) shines in the moonlight and guides Santa's sleigh to your home.

Before bed, the girls said "good bye" to our elf, Elfie. It was so cute to hear them. Matt and I just grinned and grinned.

Matt read Luke 2 and Matthew 2 for our bedtime story, and then the girls fell asleep surprisingly fast!

Happy Christmas Eve to us!
