Christmas Cheer on Christmas Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve everyone!

I'm definitely feeling the spirit of Christmas and can't wait to go to church this evening and then spend time with my family at my grandmother's house!

Yesterday and today I've been babysitting my nieces.  I'm not sure if I've ever written about them on the blog...but I love these kids SO much!  They are 14, 12, and 7 and are so much fun.  Since Daniel and I have been together 10 (going on 11) years, I've gotten to be around them almost all of their lives. I love thinking of new and fun activities to do with them...and they even have their own room in our new house (they had one in our old house as well).

I was going to take them ice skating yesterday, but the rain kept us from going.  Instead, we created a giant pallet on the floor and snuggled up for a Christmas movie marathon (I've been recording movies I thought they'd like all season).

3 kids + 3 dogs + 1 aunt = best snuggles ever

I think she was really into this movie!
At lunch time we decided to make Chicken and Dumplings (I will post the recipe soon).  It's a great meal to cook and let kids get involved--what kid doesn't like to knead and roll out dough?

We eventually decided to brave the rain and go visit our house.  The girls approved of their new room color and are very excited about their first sleepover at the new house!  When we got home, everyone warmed up with double chocolate hot cocoa!

Before I head to my grandmother's house, the girls and I are going to make Christmas Ornaments!  Nothing puts me in a Christmas mood like the joy and excitement of kids!

Merry Christmas!
