Christmas Eve

Well another Christmas Eve is here and this is the 3rd one in this house.  Today we visited friends, bought some groceries, made rice salad and home made ice cream, did our traditional Christmas Eve Photo Shoot and Santa letters are in the letter box.  Sienna has two since she has revised her original list.  We watched a Christmas DVD "The Flight Before Christmas".  We read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" Aussie Style before putting out some milk and slice for Santa.  The kids are so excited and it was hard to get them to settle into bed.  James kept sneaking out and hiding in the toy room to get a glimpse of Santa however at 8pm it's a bit early for Santa.  Sienna on the other hand was happy to go to sleep and I warned them both not to get up too early.  I know what they are like on birthdays (4 am or so) so when I said to Sienna "now don't get up too early" she replied with "oh, does it have to be in the 5's".  I nearly started laughing because it was so matter of fact and it was such a cute way to say it.  I said I would prefer the "6's" however I know that's not going to happen.  We'll probably get up at 5 am and see what Santa brought and then Mummy will go back to bed for some more beauty sleep.  Here's a few photos from our day.

Visiting friends and a few photos this morning.

Christmas Rice Salad is made.

We do this Christmas Photo Shoot in front of the tree every Christmas Eve for the past 6.

And a group shot.

Opening presents from the Melbourne relatives today...who needs presents when you can be silly playing with the gift wrap.

The Flight before Christmas DVD we watch every year.

Letters are posted in our letter box awaiting Santa tonight.

Santa gets one of the yummy pieces of slice I made yesterday and some milk and a note from Sienna.

Ready for Santa's arrival.
