Christmas Eve on the Hauck Homestead 2010

On the 23rd, my Mama, Molly, and I spent some time making peanut butter cookies. Mols was such a sweet little thing, she helped us decorate. :) Poor Anthony had been sick most the day, but after his nap he woke up well and chipper and asked for a cookie right away, haha! He was ravenously hungry and I swear scarfed down a whole box of mac&cheese. That night Sammy and I were able to get out of the house and meet some friends for dinner. We chummed it up and I had a few Pendelton and Coke's, yum! After, we went around delivering the cookies I had bundled in cute little bags.

Christmas Eve

We had a great Christmas Eve! Sammy and my Mom spent a great deal of time in the kitchen preparing our delicious dinner of prime rib, turkey, homemade stuffing, green beans, and candied yams. We had our good neighbors and friends from down the way come over to enjoy our meal with us. Growing up it was my family tradition to open one gift on Christmas Eve, this is something Sam and I have decided to continue with our little family. :) The kiddos, Sam, and I sat down after picking one gift and opened them. Molly picked a gift from her Grandma Hauck - a v-tech plush puppy, Anthony picked a gift from me - crayola wonders, I picked a gift from Sammy - a flash diffuser for my camera, and Sammy picked a gift from me - one that I had bought special for him that day, candle metal wall scones decorated with leaves and acorns. We got the kiddos ready for bed then Sammy wrote a note to Santa with Anthony. We put cookies and a glass of milk on the table then sent the kids on their merry way to bed. Once they were snug as a bug in a rug, "Santa" took some bites out of the cookies, drank the milk, wrote a note back to Molly and Anthony, and delivered some presents. Oh how fun it is to be a Mama and a Papa!!!!
