Kaylie decorated a ceramic tile in class. It is super glittery and sparkly.
On Christmas Day, I made the traditional Puerto Rican Yellow Rice with Pigeon Beans, my favorite.
I also made a "pernil," a/k/a pork roast.
Christmas morning. Liam searching for goodie.
Kaylie was pleased with the doll's accessories case she got for Lily.
A present for Lily! Oh, how exciting.
Kay and Liam opening gifts.
She is delighted to see that she got a makeup case.
Thank you note from Santa.
Liam's note to Santa alerting him to the treats and milk. Kaylie wrote him a thank you note, too.
It was 10:00 p.m. and the kids hadn't gone to bed yet. Liam wanted to make sure that Santa got fresh cookies and milk. He insisted on pouring it himself.
Kaylie helping me to mix the cookie batter.
Liam checking on the status of Santa Claus. The Norad site is great because it shows the places that Santa has traveled to and even tells you where he is headed next. I like that it has videos that give you tidbits of information about the countries he has visited.
Liam and Kaylie in front of the oven watching the cupcakes rise.
Santa even has a picture of me!
Last chocolate from Kaylie's Advent Calendar...boy, did they look forward to eating the tiny chocolates each morning. :)
Kaylie loves peppermint candy canes. She placed them on the tree to resemble a heart. She's a clever one I tell you!
