Today was Christmas Eve
We walked with Kate, Kai and Meeko to the deli. Kate gave us each $2 to spend.
Dad and Simon went grocery shopping again.
Mum cooked dips and White Christmas and Kate did some cooking too.
We finished decorating house and making sure everything was ready so Santa. The girls put a bucket of water and carrots out for the Reindeers.
We then watched some Christmas shows with lots of singing.
