My Mom is spending Christmas with us and today we started the fun stuff! We cooked. We played. We let each child open one gift. We made cookies for Santa. We went to an evening service where Wade, Ben, and I were Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus. (Thankfully Ben fell asleep as we were in standing in the hallway waiting to make our entrance and slept through his entire performance in front of the church.) Then the children each picked out their favorite cookie and left a plate for Santa.
