We had a wonderful Christmas Eve, but a busy one. Scott took Caty out in the morning and Caty used her own money to buy Hanna a Christmas present. Here she is wrapping it. You’ll have to wait until the next post from Christmas Day to find out what it was. Caty was so proud of herself for wrapping it.
Hanna spent some time working on her newest trick – sitting up on her own.
The shirt says it all - “Good Things Come In Small Packages”
We invited a few friends over to join us for pizza – I know, not the most traditional Christmas Eve dinner, but with a houseful of kids who were excited about going out afterwards to look at Christmas lights, the pizza was a hit. Izabel is one of Caty’s best friends from her preschool class. So we were joined by Izabel, and her siblings Zack and Emma, Beverly who is staying with Izabel’s family and Izabel’s moms Kelly and Farah. The kids played with quite possibly every toy that Caty has. I should have taken a pictures of the toy tornado that came through but I forgot. After an early dinner, we bundled all 6 kids up and headed over to Rocklin where there is a street – Pebble Creek - who decorates to the max. The kids had an ABSOLUTE BLAST! That’s putting it mildly. Caty was so excited, yelling and running from house to house. We spent about an hour walking along the street looking at the lights. I’m surprised that Caty walked almost the whole time – her poor little legs were working twice as hard. But she didn’t complain at all. We visited the street last year on Christmas Eve and I think it’s going to become an annual tradition.
What a busy, tiring day, but a wonderful one!
