Advent-Day 24

As is tradition today’s advent activity was opening a gift. Brady insisted Daddy open his, too (luckily they matched 😉

Veggie soup for lunch and The Pioneer Woman’s tomato-cream pasta for dinner (she serves hers over fettucini, I serve mine over penne and broccoli)

And to do a little crocheting and make some stocking stuffers for the cats

And cookies, milk, and celery for Santa and the reindeer

He asked me to take this pic and then posed like that while saying "Merry Christmas!" goofball

Then we tucked into the big bed to watch “A Christmas Story”

So Santa and the troll could work their magic
