On Christmas Eve the house was a flurry of activity. We had our neighbours in for drinks and snacks and then we had my parents over for raclette. We were also getting the last minute stuff done for Christmas. It was a busy day. Avery was acting a little weird all day and ended up doing this while we had dinner.
She fell asleep before dinner, had a fever and I put her to bed around 7. She missed out on all the Christmas Eve festivities including her favourite dinner. I was so sad for her and was worried that Christmas would be ruined. On the other hand, Meredith was totally into everything. Her eyes were twinkling with excitement. She wrote this note for Santa, put out the cookies and sprinkled the reindeer food on the front lawn. We read Twas the Night Before Christmas and she was in bed. No wrapping for me this Christmas Eve - a first.
