Christmas Eve was very low key this year. We decided to do our big Christmas dinner on Christmas day so Grandma and Grandpa Morrison could join us. RJ sewed the girls’ Elsa jammies all day. I had the idea back in October and picked out the material and pattern. It was quite the experience as I had won surprise after another when it came to paying at the register. I thought with Amanda and Pam here, they would be eager to do a project . Amanda got most of Hunter’s done and some pieces cut out for the girl’s but the rest was left to RJ. He did an amazing job and got it done in the nick of time (literally at bedtime). We read the Christmas story as experienced in the America’s, set out lemon read and carrots for Santa and his reindeer and tucked the kids in. They made a fort in Hunter’s room and wanted to all sleep together. It was reminiscent of my childhood. I can’t believe they actually went right to sleep! When the kids were asleep, I made our famous cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning breakfast.
Hunter’s Duck pajamas were too small last year, so we tried one more time. There will be no third time’s a charm next year. We are buying pajamas!
Little Ryder wore a velvety blue sleeper that Hunter wore as a baby. It read “Baby’s First Christmas”.
