Today is CHRISTMAS EVE!!!
It has been such a fun day!
This morning we got up and went to the firehouse to see Santa! We were the first ones there so we thus, didn't have to wait in line for hours while little kids screamed and ran away. But, after waiting for the hour or so we did (we actually helped setup and things so it went by fast) the kids all went through seeing Santa fairly fast. But it was ok. We Had fun still. BC didn't go cause it was so cold and she has an pneumonia so my dad stayed home to watch her.
We went home and fiddled here and there doing things and relaxing. Then me and my dad and Clint all took off in my parents Polaris Ranger and we went and shot clints new handgun, and my 22 (that I got for our anniversary in 2006) and I had only shot once. lol. I did ok. I have to shoot on my left side...and I soon learned that my father does that too. How funny!
At around 6 or so we headed down to my bro John's and got ready for the traditions. Each family (mine, johns, and then my mom and dad) all got to make our own big pizza and put whatever we wanted on it.
Homemade Family Pizza
While they were cooking me and my brother played around on the piano, and then he played while we sang some duets (most of which he wrote). After dinner, we all gathered around the tree (so to speak) and we read a story.
Then we let the kids open their Christmas eve present! Jammies of course.We found matching slippers for the girls too. How Cute! I got clint a pair of fleece bottoms with Mario Bros on them. And I got some with the words 'Dr. Pepper'. LOL.
anyways, When everyone was all changed we piled into two cars and drove around GR (which took about 20 mins to see ALL the lights in town) to see the Christmas Lights. It was so fun.
Then we went back to johns and decorated cookies for Santa. (unfortunately we left our plate at johns when we came home, so we just got some oreos from my parents cookie jar and used those for the cookies plate).
LOL. But we got the girls to sleep (without much trouble) and waited for santa to come. :) (wink). Have a great Holiday!
Happy Black History Month
