Christmas Eve Traditions

After the girls sang in the church choir on Christmas Eve, we came home and had dinner.

After dinner, they make reindeer food. This is something they look forward to doing. Sophia peeled and cut up carrots to put out for Santa's reindeer.

Olivia (and later Sophia) took oatmeal and added sugar sprinkles to it. The oats give the "reindeer energy to last the rest of their flight" while the sugar sprinkles give the reindeer a quick pick-me-up.

The girls know not to put TOO many sprinkles in the reindeer food. Otherwise, Santa's reindeer will have a lot of energy fast...and then have a "sugar crash." They wouldn't want they showed some restraint with the sprinkles.

This is Olivia adding sprinkles to her bowl of reindeer food.
