Perperations for the big day
Christmas Eve night is a big one at our house. First we attend a candlelight service at our church then we come home and the kids get out milk and cookies for santa. They then get out three bowls and fill them with a mix of oatmeal and magic sprinkles, to leave out side on the steps and sidewalk for Santa's riendeer. The three of them then fly up to bed so mom can get out all the gifts from their hiding places and place them under the tree, so the kids can be amazed by the sight of it all in the morning. Usually mom spends the night wrapping for hours, but this time Dad helped her after their big shopping day together in Fort Wayne a month earlier. We figured our crew is getting a bit to big to leave unwrapped gifts around even if they are hidden.
