While Christmas Eve day was a flurry of last-minute shopping, we did manage to settle down to a nice, cozy Christmas Eve (eve). Buddha and Bugga got to open one present each, Grandma recited "Twas the Night Before Christmas" for us, and we put out stockings for Santa to fill and cookies and milk for Santa to eat. Oh, don't forget carrots and ... yes, cheerios, for Santa's reindeer. Bugga and Buddha went down easily after the long day filled with activity, but Santa was definitely busy at our house Christmas Eve. It's a wonder he made it to anyone else's homes.
