St.Nick 2009

St. Nick is a GREAT tradition...he's come to our house every year:

Although this year, we didn't do our Annual St. Nick Movie Night at the Babcock's (it will be this Saturday! Stay tuned!) right on the feast of St. Nick, he did manage to make it to our house! And we were sooo excited!

We had spent the entire weekend being spoiled at GG Jane's because Adam had gone on his annual hunting trip with the El Campo boys. When Daddy got home, he was sick. Early stages of pneumonia. We ate soup at GG's, and then came home to get in our new Christmas jammies and wait for sounds of St. Nick. Around 6:30, we hear rustling outside. When Jackson got to the door, he found a big bag of goodies! Some for him, some for Ev:

Classic Christmas Movie Set for Jackson
(Rudolph, Frosty, Santa Claus comes to Town)
Peek-a-Boo Christmas for Everson
Reindeer Cookies
Snowman Cookies
Snowflake Hot Chocolate Mugs
Candy Cane Hot Cocoa
M&M Candy Cane
Tic Tacs

Jackson DID make sure that he grabbed Ev before he went to the door, b/c he had to "show him who St. Nick is!" He loves his little bro...

Jackson was looking for St. Nick. I told him that one time when I was little, I walked by the front door at our Wichita house, and I saw 2 green eyes staring in the window. I really do remember it, but I'm sure it's a little more exaggerated in my mind now....but Jack was looking for him!

...everything we need for a GREAT movie night!! All we need now, is the popcorn, and we are all set!! Daddy-O read a letter that St. Nick set for the boys. It told them to be good and to tell Cole (our Elf) he said hello. Also, he asked Jackson to read his book to him....

That night, Mommy and Jack Jack baked one of the boxes of cookies and made 2 hot cocoas to drink while we watched Santa Clause is Coming to Town and Frosty the Snowman...Daddy-O missed out. Poor guy. He was quarantined upstairs in our room! After our movies, Jackson and me and Everson had a slumber party in Jackson's room! Ev was on the floor in his Eddie Bauer sleeper, and Jackson and I snuggled in his bed. It was a great night--but we missed our Daddy-O! Adam went to the doctor the next morning to find that he had EARLY stages of pneumonia--a shot of lasik in the butt, a heavy duty antibiotic, and an inhaler later, and he's good to go! And now, 3 days later, he's allowed to hold his baby again! HA!

We hope to make up for movie night this's going to be a HOLIDAY FILLED weekend: Breakfast with Santa, Baking at Memaw's, Holiday light tour in Galveston, ending with Frosty and hot is good!!
