It’s so much fun looking forward to Christmas day with a 6 year-old.
Everything is so dramatic, and so passionate.
Because as soon as December arrived, it was –
“Oh, how many days until Christmas? That’s too long!”
And today it was the complete opposite –
“YEAH! SANTA IS COMING TONIGHT! I CAN’T WAIT TO OPEN MY PRESENTS!”
(With a lot of jumping up and down and diving into the couch for added effect).
I don’t know how baby girl (and we) lasted the past month with her questions about Christmas and how far it was… but we made it.
Tonight we sprinkled sparkly oats on our lawn to guide the reindeers to our house.
And then as night fell we took a quick drive around the neighbourhood, gasping and pointing at anything shiny and reflective in the night.
There are some seriously cool light displays out there.
Tonight, it’s the traditional spread for Santa and his red-nosed reindeer.
I don’t suppose I’ll be the only parent tonight downing milk, chomping on carrots and sneaking in gingerbread? (I say as I wipe away my milk moustache… 😉 )
Merry Christmas Eve all 🙂
