Merry Christmas Eve. We are ready for Christmas and for Santa! I might be more excited than anyone else in the house! I'm also excited for Gage to not ask 100 times an hour all day if TODAY is Christmas Eve. He can hardly stand the presents under the tree that he can't open. It has been so funny to watch him attack whoever the new person is that walks into our house with: "HEY (insert name of whoever just walked in) is today Christmas eve?" Even after you say 'NO' he will just keep asking as if the act of asking again might magically change the day to Christmas eve. Our children got to meet Santa last night for the first time. He did not dissapoint. Santa asked why they took so long to come meet him and immediatly a vision popped into my mind of the 2 hour wait in the cold and all the barking dogs that were also in line to see Santa with their childless owners along with Gage throwing up all over Devin. But I just replied.. "Man I don't know!" haha. He was a sweet Santa though. The kids really liked him, but were too excited/scared to mumble a word. Afterwards they just were really concerned about his belly not being as round as they thought it should be! We've also had a secret Santa drop off a Manger on our doorstep about 10 days ago and every morning since we have a wrapped piece of the manger and a touching Christmas story to go along with it. Tomorrow morning I am expecting baby Jesus on our door step since it is the only missing piece. I want to kiss our babysitter (who Devin and I sneekily figured out is the gifter hehe) This little act has added so much excitement and 'specialness' to our Christmas season this year. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas rejoicing in the gift of our Savior.
