I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas this year! The kids woke up right around 12:30 a.m. and started asking if they could open presents. This happened several times, and finally the 2 youngest gave up and crawled into bed with my husband and I. Needless to say, I slept horrible until I got up out of bed at 6. We sleep in a King-size bed, but as you can see, the kids like to spread out.
I went to the living room to watch A Christmas Story…one of my favorite Christmas movies! I love that TBS plays it for 24 hours straight. I managed to actually watch it this year. On Christmas Eve, my husband told the kids to not expect to open presents before 8 a.m. I thought the kids would never make it, but I had a hard time waking Lucas up, and he asked me to carry him to the living room. Silly goose. As a mom, it gives me so much joy to see the kids’ faces on Christmas morning. The most-loved gifts were the nabi 2, Skylanders SWAP Force, Cabela’s African Adventures, and money towards an iPod.
Of course, we remember the ultimate gift…God sending his son Jesus to the world as a baby to die so that one day we can live in Heaven. Giving gifts to others symbolizes God’s giving, although we could never give a gift that special.
I pray that your family has had a wonderful Christmas!
