Christmas Eve

We are trying to get back on schedule after taking time off at Christmas. Zack has been a nightmare at bedtime, taking 1 1/2 hours before finally giving up, and neither of them want to wake up in the morning.

Addison started her new daycare on Monday. She is now at the same center as Zack. It is so nice to only have to make one stop. She is still adjusting to the new atmosphere. She cries on and off throughout the day, but overall does well. Monday I had to force myself to leave as I watched her bawling through the window after I left the room. They said she did calm down after a few minutes, thankfully. The little piggy is used to snacking whenever she is hungry and now they have scheduled snack times. She is "starving" when I pick her up from school. I thought she was going to tear Zack apart if he didn't share the dried apple pieces that I had in the car. They only take one 2 hour nap in the afternoon, so she has to adjust to that schedule. She is used to two naps. I'm sure she is a bear for them after 10 AM.

Now for our Christmas recap. Here are some shots from Christmas Eve. Zack picked out some cookies for Santa and carrots and celery for the reindeer.

Addison didn't want to share with Santa, so Zack had to hold her back.
Ryan read, The Night Before Christmas, to the kids

Addison quickly lost interest and started playing with her feet.

After the kids were all nestled snug in their beds Mr. C came for a visit. Zack wasn't too sure about going to bed knowing that Santa would be sneaking into the house. When he woke up Christmas morning he yelled out for me instead of coming into our bedroom like he always does. He still wasn't too sure about Santa coming into the house, but he quickly got over the fear when he saw all the cool presents.
Santa helped himself to the snacks too
