He was "hiding" on my bed and had several fun items for the boys to enjoy. He left a cookie mix and cutters to make Christmas cookies, he left a book "A Charlie Brown Christmas" to read and instructions about watching the movie outdoors later that evening. He also left popcorn to pop for the movie. My little guys were hyped up about the day, REALLY hyped up, ha.
First up was breakfast and I made these fun Mr. Grinch fruit sticks to go with what we were having.
our gingerbread man sugar cookies
Our Christmas tree sugar cookies
my little guys always enjoy painting
zoom, zoom, zoom
I just love the tags. Aren't they cute?
It was a gorgeous evening!!!
We had hot dogs and chips for supper and then started the movie. We popped our popcorn and had a fun little time.

It wasn't long before Ben moved his car over and sat closer to his brother. I thought it was sweet!
We had bathed them and put their pj's on before the movie started so once it was over they were ready to go straight to bed. Once they were asleep I did a little decorating in the kitchen for them to find the next morning.
I hung a few streamers and balloons from the ceiling fans and sat out Jingles with his Christmas Eve surprise (items to make our "Happy Birthday, Jesus" cake).
It's now Christmas Eve and we're ready to let the party begin. What an honor to get to celebrate the birth of a King, our Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
Merry Christmas everyone from our little family to yours.
