Christmas Eve











Crew was a little intense about the left, right present game


Cookies and milk for Santa and his helpers and carrots for the reindeer! (Ava counted and made sure to leave one carrot for each reindeer, I hope they weren't hungry for more than one)

We took the kids swimming at Lindey and Corbin's in the morning to entertain the excitement!

Riverwoods Holiday Decor

We went down to the Riverwoods to walk around see the new holiday decor and see Santa. The kids enjoyed an ice cream cone after even though it was freezing!

Gardner Village Elves

Every year we go to Gardner Village to see Santa's cute Elves. We met Kris and Kecia and the girls. It was a perfect night, we barely needed a coat and it was not crowded one bit. The kids got their list and literally ran from elf to elf as fast as they could to find them all so they could get their prize at the end! We had a great time!




It was so cute in the shops that were empty they had scenes set up with new elves!
