Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is always such a fun day spent with the family. The boys woke up and went over to the church to play some basketball while I stayed home and got everything ready for the day of baking. We made sugar cookies, chex mix, muddy buddies, pretzel rolos, oreo balls and fudge. The sad thing was that it was disappearing faster than we were making it. We had a house full of boys with hungry tummys.

The most popular treat was the pretzel rolos. They are so yummy and simple to eat. You just get a bag of square pretzels, oreos and m&m’s. Put the pretzels on a cookies sheet and add a rolo on top of the pretzel. Put in the oven at 250 degrees for about 3 minutes. Take out of oven and push a m&m into the rolo, or just add another pretzel to the top.

After the baking was done we all opened our traditional Christmas jammies from Grandma Taryn. Us girls had a fun little photo shoot in our pj’s, then we headed up to Perry to get lunch from the Maddox take-out cabin.

Baby Titan wanted to be part of the photo shoot too. Isn’t he the cutest? He loved the Christmas lights.

When bedtime came around the kids were so excited they could barely even standard it, but lucky for us parents they went to bed at a reasonable time. Cam and Cy are at such a fun stage for Christmas. They left Santa a note and some cookies and milk.
