Merry Christmas Eve

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve. We’re planning on our traditional Swedish meatballs and then I have a surprise gift tucked away with new PJs for all, a Christmas movie, popcorn and hot cocoa. I’m hoping to start a new Christmas eve tradition. Here are some photos from our last couple weeks of Christmas preparations.

I was excited to have this little elf to help me with cookie making this year.

She loves pushing Dizzy all around the house.

Ali helped me make the raspberry thumbprint cookies so she got to enjoy one of them fresh from the oven.

And a peanut butter blossom, too, because what the heck. It’s Christmas. I decided she should get to eat way too many cookies like the rest of us.

Next year we’re going to get a traditional green tree for all of these fun and sentimental ornaments. This year to keep them safe I made a wall “tree” with command hooks and ribbon.

We’ve been using the fireplace a lot so I was afraid to hang the stockings too close to the fire.

This works!

Our tree can’t support Christmas lights but it’s so sparkly when the sunlight shines on it that it glows!

Ali woke up on Saturday morning, pointed to her head and said “hat.” She wore her Santa hat most of the day.

I call this “scowl face.” I was trying really hard to get her to do it the other day so I could capture it in a photo but now she seems to think this is THE face to make for every photo. Haha!
