{Christmas Eve and Reindeer Food...






This year we had Christmas at my parents house in Loveland so we went straight from our overnighter in Denver up to their place. Christmas Eve was so fun. Tanner and J played on the four wheeler in the backyard and mom, Tessa and I enjoyed a 2.5 hour workout while Todd and Sammy hung out and watched football. That night we had a low key dinner and afterwards we had some friends come over and the kids acted out the Nativity. It was so cute! After our company had left for the night, the boys opened up their pj's and Jackson wrote a note to Santa (and Rudolph). Then we went out in the backyard and left some food for the reindeer (which is a mix of oats, marshmallows, pretzels and of course, glitter!). We tried to read a story, but Jackson was so worried that Santa wouldn't come if he wasn't in bed that minute that he missed out.

What fun!!! Sounds like your family really has a lot of great traditions. I love the reindeer food idea; we all think to feed Santa, but those reindeer need food, too!! :-)
