Christmas with the Hughes Family~

This year we mixed things up a bit and ate Breakfast at mom-mom's house. Usually we go over to their neighbors to eat. It was delicious as always and I think we were all even hungrier than usual!
A pretty wretched shot of the fam getting ready to eat

This picture cracks me up because of what's on TV in front of the kids... You should know what it is! We leave it on basically 24-7 except for when we're watching the Yule Log of course!

Thank you Mom-Mom and Papa for the money for college!

Christmas Eve Preparations

There's so much to do on Christmas eve to get ready for Santa... Carrots and Oats, cookies, milk, letters, etc. The kids really had fun with it all this year! Then, after the kids were asleep we had to finish some last minute wrapping and complete our duties to perpare for santa too. I do believe it's one of my favorite things ever!! :) I am just as excited as the kids!

A letter, cookies, and milk for Mr. Claus... the sippy cup is because our dumb cats would tip the glass over!
