Aidan puts out the treats on Christmas Eve. He wouldn't hear of the reindeer sharing one carrot! I made brownies from the book "Deceptively Delicious." Don't tell anyone, but they have carrot puree, spinach puree and whole-grain oat flour in them. They were quite tasty!
I was nervous about how the brownies would go over, so I got some whipped cream to sweeten the deal, so to speak. They loved it!
Surprisingly, I was the first one up this morning and got the coffee going and the cameras ready. Aidan got up a little before 7--here he is pointing at the presents.
Santa came! Left to right is Ryan's, Lauren's, my mom's, Aidan's and mine. We ordered Lauren's stocking online and had no idea it would be twice the size of everyone else's--I didn't think to check the dimensions!
Once Lauren got up and joined the party (with crazy bed head!) , Aidan helped her open the box with her new baby doll inside.
Aw...our baby with her new baby from China Sprout.
Lauren all dressed in her stylin' new coat from family friends that live in Italy, and her new rainboots from Bethie, and of course her binky.
We visited our old friends Margaret, Dan, Lily and Chase for lunch and had a great time. It was snowing at their house, and the boys scootered in the snow!
I love this action shot of Aidan in motion! He has gotten so good on his scooter since he got it last Christmas.
