We had a merry little Christmas

I could not wait for Christmas Eve this year. In the retail world, Christmas Eve is not a corporate holiday. At Toys"R"Us, special events with Santa, Geoffrey, and toys are created for families on Christmas Eve so that it really doesn't feel like a work day. And while all of that is absolutely wonderful (and really quite generous), I decided that we would forgo the work events this year. Greg had to work and heading in to TRU for this event without him would not be the same.
Instead, the boys and I made cookies and we decorated the mantle for Santa while we waited for Greg to get home. Greg got home pretty early, so we headed to church and then began our evening tradition of food, fun, and laughter. The boys frosted cookies and made up their plate for Santa. On Christmas morning, no one was disappointed! The boys loved their gifts! The theme this year was sports and primarily hockey and football. I especially adore the two ornaments that the boys made for us their after school program.


  1. Aww!! Merry Christmas to you and the rest of the family! Looks like it was a great day!

    1. Merry Christmas to you too! I am so excited for your wedding next year!
