We had such a relaxing Christmas. The kids woke up at a reasonable hour (an added bonus of Midnight Mass) and they enjoyed each of their gifts. Our only negative was Joey didn't feel all that well most of the day.
I love the excitement of watching the kids open their stockings. I think they look forward to that as much or more than the other presents. I was the same way.

We left the mess until the next day. I loved it. I always liked the aftermath when I was a little girl and Mama would leave it for an hour or so until she couldn't stand it any longer. The kids just played so well and we had a simple meal, so there was no need to hurry about.
My heart was so happy, as during the day I saw my children playing. Thomas was a pro on his roller blades after the first try and back indoors, I saw scenes like those below that made me so glad ours was not a plugged-in Christmas.
|These flying fairies are awesome...the first day :( Such fun for a day, but such a disappointment!|
|Loving this construction set. He can build anything!|
|Lots of fashion creativity and this set includes pattern pieces so she can learn about clothing construction.|
I hope your Christmas was a merry and blessed one!
