This was Bobalina's last night and she set up the tea set for us to have a tea party and left behind a few M & M's!
Santa tracker was happening at our house too! Kathleen was so excited and kept checking it throughout the day.
We found a cute idea on Pinterest for our craft this year. Kathleen liked both ideas so she did 2 pictures.
The first required painting the bottoms of her feet which later became the body of 2 mice. She was laughing and giggling the whole time I painted her feet!
Here's the final pictures! The Santa one was done with fingers and thumbs in the paint and then filled in with marker in a couple areas. They turned out really cute!
Hayley added a night sky to hers and I really love how the colors turned out on it.
Later when we arrived home we watched a few of our favorite Christmas movies :-) Polar Express was one and Mirabelle was just hanging out with us happy as can be!
Girls had their new Christmas pajamas on, a tradition to get a new pair every year!
We always choose a couple of gifts to exchange on Christmas Eve and the girls exchange theirs with each other. Kathleen got Hayley this cute Minion shirt.
And Hayley got Kathleen this Elvis Presley ornament. Kathleen loves listening to his songs.
Another tradition is to read The Night Before Christmas! We read it to Hayley, Hayley read it to us, then Kathleen and now Kathleen reads it to all of us. :-)
Elvis enjoys listening to it also as he lays under the tree, one of his favorite spots to be!
Jerry was pretty tired out and had a little cat nap. ;-)
Kathleen wrote her note for Santa, she was a little upset this year because we couldn't find the pickle ornament for the tree. There were a few items we couldn't find this year. When we pack up after New Years we will reorganize and donate a few things and hopefully find it then.
I think it's cute how Elf in the back ground on the TV just happened to photo bomb them in this picture, lol!
