Preparing for Santa's Arrival

Evelyn and Sylvia were really excited about the rituals of preparing for Santa.  We made gingerbread cookies and carefully selected the ones for Santa.  The girls made magic reindeer food too -- oats and sprinkles.  We set out some carrots for the reindeers too.  I think the girls feel asleep the fastest they ever have.  They both said they would "read just one book and go right to bed." 

I thought for sure they would both be up earlier than usual (Evelyn is almost always awake in her room by 6:30am, but stays put reading and resting until 7:00am on the dot).  Christmas morning they actually slept in!
