Every Night Before Christmas all of us look forward to a few simple traditions:
We all always go outside and put out reindeer food (oatmeal) for Santa’s reindeer. Because, of course, the reindeer are also hungry after such a long night of work.
Milk and cookies left out for Santa. Tonight we have thumbprint cookies and mint cookies.
After the youngers are in bed and asleep, the olders set out all the gifts. These two big kids are so sweet! They really look forward to this part of Christmas each and every year and place the gifts “just so”.
