Christmas Eve at the Hollands

The cousins got to spend Christmas Eve together - dancing, playing, eating, singing, and generally getting excited. Aunty Milly made us all a delicious cheddar broccoli potato soup. The girls played together (really well I'm happy to report), then bathed:



And got dressed in matchy-pajamas:



Then, baking cookies to leave out for Santa:

If there are any left, that is:

Then, we said goodbye, drove Abby home to Grandmas & she left out Santa's cookies & carrots for his reindeer:
And a Hansens soda, because he might need that too:

She went to bed pretty excited but bewildered after leaving her empty pillowcase out for Santa to fill (this must be an English thing, Jake couldn't figure out what in the world I was doing). After telling her to be good for a month, and saying he brings presents for a month, it was finally the night it was all going to happen!
