My dad recorded 'Twas the Night Before Christmas for the kids during his last Christmas on Earth. He had always read it to children in the family and of course to Mallory and Michael. I'm so thankful to have this special keepsake. The kids listened to him read it to them on Chrisas Eve then Paul read the Christmas story from Luke.
Then the kids each opened a few gifts.
Next Mallory set up the snacks for Santa and his reindeer.
Then the kids used the binoculars to look for Santa's sleigh.
They said good night and good bye to our elves who would be heading out that night and then they went to sleep in great anticipation of the morning ahead.
