Christmas Eve

Friday: The Eve of Christmas Eve - Tresa & Jon took Hollyn & Bryn to see Sing at the movies.  It was nasty and rainy out, so Drew & I went to work with Chris.  We also went to Marketplace and Hobby Lobby.   They came over after the movies and Hunter opened his present from us!

We made our cookies for Santa that night after putting Drew to bed....

Christmas Eve, Saturday morning:  Hollyn begged to open a present, so they Facetimed Chris's family and asked if they could open one from them!  Drew opened his first Christmas present - some VTech cars!
We got ready... the girls wore their new Matilda Jane Joanna Gaines collection dresses!  and we took a few picture with the self timer!  

Then we grabbed some lunch from IDK before going to my Uncle Rob's house.

 Then to Chris's grandma Chandler's...

Then to my parents' house

 After eating and opening presents, the adults played Cards Against Humanity.

Then went  home around 7:30.  Drew was tired, but we still took our traditional pictures...  We got our Santa cookies ready... gluten free funfetti with Marshmallow frosting, and Almondmilk Egg nog.

Bryn has to have "family time" on the couch before going to bed.  Even if it's late.  
 Then they couldn't wait to get to bed.   They even begged to sleep together in Hollyn's bed.  We told Bryn that Santa wouldn't come if she got out of her bed, and she listened!

....Here comes Santa Claus!!!

Bentonville Square

We took the kids to the Bentonville Square last night to walk around and look at the lights! 

And got hot chocolates

 Then walked down to see the ice skating rink! The girls saw the green penguin in the window at 21c "that we had dinner with" on our anniversary and they had to go in and see him!
