christmas eve at the house of wan was relatively low-key. i was pretty happy to see that the weather forecast from earlier in the week was off by about 10 degrees - i didn't really want to have a repeat of the 80-degree weather we had over thanksgiving.
with the ILs in town for the holidays, we kind of just relaxed for most of the day. we did make our way out to pick stuff up to make christmas dinner, and on our way back stopped for a quick treat.
back at home, the bean found that pixie had left one last gift: magic reindeer food, meant to be sprinkled in the yard to lure santa's ride to our house to leave lots of presents.
after the bean tossed out a handful, she passed the bucket over to me, the teen, and MIL to take a turn.
what's christmas eve without a tall glass of horchata and some delicious mexican grub?
after dinner, we headed over to church to take in a special christmas eve service.
the bean decided to put out two brownie bites, a cookie and a glass of water for santa. she was afraid he'd get tired of drinking milk at every other house and figured some agua would be a refreshing change.
then we changed into our special christmas pajamas, snapped a selfie, and then it was off to bed for her so that santa could make his way to our house and get 'er done.
because we'd had so much downtime during the day, i managed to get most of the gift wrapping done before dinner. it was really nice to be able to just place all of the presents under the tree and be asleep before midnight. such a difference from - oh, pretty much every other year. heh.
merry christmas to all, and to all a good night!
