Because we traveled East for Thanksgiving this year, we spent Christmas with Grandma and Papa in Branson.  We still wanted to do Christmas at our house, though, so we did a few nights early.  Carina was convinced she must have been extra good this year to have had Santa visit her both at home AND at Grandma’s house.

So, the night Santa was going to visit us, Daddy helped Carina put out milk and cookies for santa, and carrot for the reindeer, of course.  (She doesn’t normally wear her brother’s pajamas to bed, but she was just in the mood…)

In the morning it was exciting to watch the kids inventory their stockings…

Eat the candy canes that Santa left on the tree…

And open those exciting presents that Santa left under the tree!
