Christmas Eve

Happy Birthday Blue!!!

Poor buddy is now 13 years old and feeling very neglected. He is used to getting pig ears, someone to lay on the floor with him and receiving very long petting sessions, but those have all gone away since the arrival of 3 very crazy little people. So I thought I would make it up to him by putting his lovely mug at the start of this Christmas Eve post. He looks excited doesn't he? Oh Blue, you will always have Tripp. Little buddy is always willing to share some of his food with you. The kids were very excited to make sugar cookies. They liked frosting the cookies and were very creative.

Tripp even had a hand in making the cookies this year!

Riley sneaking a few bites here and there.

Cash and his prize winning cookie decorating skills.

No frosting and still happy as can be!

One of our traditions is to open a game on Christmas Eve. We got them Elefun and were very excited to play it. Unfortunately, someone forgot to read that we were in need of some C batteries to play this game. We had AA, AAA, D and even 9 volt C. Of course we needed C batteries for two of their other presents they opened on Christmas day. Really? Why C? I guess next year I will be making a trip to Costco to buy a package of batteries in every letter. Major bummer.

Luckily I had picked up this Hungry, Hungry Hippo game to put in one of their stockings so we were able to play with that instead. It is the travel version so the balls were contained which was nice otherwise I am sure they would have ended up in Tripp's little belly. They loved it. Riley even slept with her "yummy hippo" game.

Tripp is ready to read his Christmas Eve story! Time to get to bed and let Santa do his thing!

And it FINALLY started to snow...
