Day 24. Open our Christmas Eve gift, (each kiddo gets to open one gift on Christmas Eve....this year they each received a new set of pj's from Mama and Papa. As an added bonus, they got to open a gift from their Aunt Erica, Uncle Matt, and Cousin Madalynn in VT!....a handmade blanket!) put out the reindeer food, and set out Santa's milk and cookies!

Now we are all in our pj's, snuggled with our blankets in the living room, ready to watch Elf before sending the kiddos off to bed! Children make Christmas so fun! 

Merry Christmas and many blessings,
from my family to yours!

With love,
Mama Hauck
