Christmas at the Howell’s

Well after dinner with my family, and when everyone was out the door, it was time to get Santa’s cookies ready.


The whole night we kept track of Santa’s movements on Norad. That was fun. In the morning, it was time for waking up, tearing open gifts and a day full of playing.


At 2 p.m., the power went out. So we made our way to the movie theater to watch The Tale of Despereaux. It was cute. When we were done, the lights were back on.

Your know your kids enjoyed the day when she stops to give you a big hug and says, “This is the awesomist Christmas and Jesus birthday EVER!”
