We had a great Christmas. We scaled back a bit and only got 4 things for each child, but with grandma gifts and gifts from siblings, they had more than enough. In fact, I think next year we'll go with 3 gifts per child to represent the gifts from the 3 wise men. I try to do whatever I can to remind them of the true meaning of Christmas.
The kids were so excited that they got up at 2:00 a.m.! When they came in to our bedroom, we ignored then in hopes they'd just go back to bed. Nope. They ran around making all kinds of noise until 6:00 when they settled down for an hour or so, then were up and running again. Tim and I finally gave up and got up.
The rest of the day was so fun, with gifts, stockings, and our traditional Christmas foods. We have Jimmy Dean Sausage, Egg and Cheese Croissants for breakfast, stocking goodies for lunch, and lasagna for dinner. May sound strange , but it's tradition for us - mostly because it requires very little cooking from me. I'm not a cook!
We finished off the day with a movie and some eggnog, and then fell into bed exhausted. Merry Christmas everyone!
