This Christmas we will be traveling to Houston and Indianapolis to visit with family. I can't wait to see family and I'm starting to get homesick! We have again decided to celebrate our own Christmas on St. Nicholas day this year just us three at home. I prepared a ham Christmas dinner with all the trimmings the night before, set out the wooden shoes, and read Lizzy the night before Christmas. Lizzy is having so much fun this Christmas. She got a personalized video from Santa and just loves watching it. The morning of our Christmas Lizzy woke early but didn't go into the living room where the presents were until later than we expected. Finally she came into our bedroom and let us know the wooden shoes had been filled and St. Nicholas had brought gifts.
Lizzy took her time opening all her gifts. Her big gift was her first big girl bike. Some cinnamon rolls and a bath later she was out riding her new bike to the park! We had a nice simple St. Nicholas day at home and Lizzy got exactly what she wished for a new bike and a telescope! Can't wait for more holiday festivities with family soon!
