'Twas the night before Christmas

...when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.

...or sugar cookies!
So, we celebrated Christmas a little early since we will not be home Christmas morning. We had a wonderful time watching Anastyn walk sleepily into the living room to open her presents and then we spent the afternoon making sugar cookies. She did such a good job helping me roll them out and cut them.

She also wore her Christmas dress to church this week. She was not happy about it and I think the pictures prove that. Maybe we can get some pictures of her this next Sunday in a little brighter mood! Either way, I thought she looked pretty cute!
I will try to post some pics of her "Christmas morning" sometime this week.
We hope everyone has a wonderful week and a Merry Christmas!

I didn't realize I didn't comment. I guess I called you instead:) Anyway, it looks like Anastyn is enjoying the cookie baking, and I LOVE her gold dress and bow, beautiful! Love you all, and can't wait to see you!
