Christmas Eve Snapshots

Just a few presents to wrap, some chocolate chip cookies to make, and we're all ready for Christmas. Some snapshots from our day:

PopPop read to Leia, her froggy, and the
(non-functional) phone that hasn't left her hand in two days.
She "calls" her Daddy every few minutes to tell him
what she's doing. Last night, she gave him a
house-by-house description of our trip to see
local Christmas lights
Leia is fascinated by SpongeBob,
the best babysitter ever
when Meema needed to distract her for just 10 minutes
so she could get a cake in the oven.

Leia got to lick her very first cake beaters.
She wasn't sure at first what was going on,
but she quickly got into it.
Yum! I baked less than usual,
but I think we'll have plenty for tomorrow -snickerdoodles,
zucchini bread, chocolate chip cake and,
with Naia's help, a big batch of chocolate chip cookies.
Naia was more interested in washing dishes
playing in the bubbles than in cooking.
The girls got to open one present before bedtime;
I think they liked what Cousin Addy sent.
Merry Christmas, from our home to yours.
