It's Christmas Eve!

Usually in the Palmer house, that means we're heading to MrP's mom's in the evening to do our family supper, but this year, we're driving to Banff this afternoon to spend a couple days with The MrP, my father in law and his wife. Last night, we had supper at my sister in law's house (fantastic supper) then did a little gift exchanging and and by 10:00 I was ready to sleep. I didn't manage to pack for the next couple of days, but I did get a shower in before 11. =)

We're planning on heading out as soon as we're done work and get a few items packed up, so I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas Eve. I hope you all are able to enjoy the time with loved ones and experience the true joy that Christmas brings. 

Oh - and I wanted to share a sweet story with you. My friend Lisa, who's hilarious Christmas tree story you can find here was telling her son not to breathe too hard or run around too much for fear of her Charlie Brown tree(s) falling over. Apparently, he told her not to worry because the moose would save them. She had no clue what he was talking about, but he ran over and grabbed the Christmas card I'd given them...


And the wonder of a three year old's mind really shines through =)




  1. Merry Christmas, Tanny, have a safe and wonderful your book ready? LOL That story is too kids at Christmas :) One year my son put Santa's hot chocolate in his thermos so it wouldn't get cold :) And one year he set his alarm for 5:00 am (which I turned off when I went to bed so it wouldn't go off!)


    Thanks for being a great friend! I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

  3. Lucky you going to Banff! Enjoy your time in that lovely place :D Have a blessed Christmas and I'm glad your moose will be there to save a teetering Christmas tree - just love living life through the eyes of kids :D Blessings!

  4. That is the sweetest little story- Your card is so cute too!

    Sew Many Cards

  5. Very cute card and story! Hope your Christmas was wonderful. Happy New Year!

  6. From the mouths of babes!!! That's such a cute story. I wish my two year old said cute things like that instead he told my Grandma that she was really bossy and that my Aunt house was stinking and he wanted to go home. He says it completely how he sees it b/c my grandma is bossy and my Aunts house does stink but I would have loved to have hidden under a rock after he said it.


Thanks for taking the time to comment =) Be sure to include your blog info so I can check out what you arere up to, as well!
