We were ready for Santa......
We did the traditional Shupe family Christmas Eve.......plus a few new twists......
We added a movie this year. We watched one of the Santa Claus movies this evening. The kids got hot chocolate and cookies for one last hurrah.
We played with the Christmas train underneath the tree.... just like we did earlier today.
We then settled in to listen to David read the Christmas story and 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
At this point in the evening we set out cookies and milk for Santa to have when he comes to visit.
Usually this is the moment in the evening when we go tuck our sleepy little ones into bed so they can drift off into sleep and dream of sugarplums (whatever those are) and reindeer and sleighs full of toys and jolly old men.
Our kids were rockin' out!!!!!
AND NOW FOR GRANT ON AIR GUITAR!!
THANK YOU!! Thank you very much!!
New family tradition????
Umm, I hope not.
Then Grace had to do her famous "La De Dah" song.....
Doin' her best Gene Simmons
She had the whole house rockin' it with her!
And to all a GOOD NIGHT!!!
Yeah right!! Like you think they're going to sleep after THAT??
