We has a wonderful Christmas. Sydney was so cute. Everything was magical to her. She is finally old enough to "get" Santa. Everything from the Christmas lights to checking the advent calender everyday was so exciting for her. On Christmas Eve we went outside and left some reindeer food for Santa's reindeer (oatmeal and glitter for those of you who are interested - thanks for the idea Kristi C. it was a huge hit!) We wouldn't want them to get hungry while Santa was bringing in the presents! Of course we left out milk and cookies for Santa and so the reindeer had an extra special treat we left them carrots. She was so amazed on Christmas morning when we came down the stairs and there it was ----- the dollhouse from Santa! After we played with that for a bit we got down to opening all of her presents. Wow, what a haul. She kept getting distracted and wanted to play with each thing she opened. We had to keep reminding her to keep opening presents. After we got though opening and putting everything together (my least favorite thing - they make the packaging adult proof!) we went to my dad's house. Diann put together a fabulous Christmas feast. Then more presents! The best part of it all was spending time with my beautiful girl and all of our family.
