Wishing you a year of health, happiness, and many blessings!
I thought I would share a glimpse of our Christmas morning with you. It is one of my favorite days of being a mom! I say every year that I am going to scale back and every year I cannot help myself and spoil the kids. I just love the look of wonder and excitement on the children’s faces.
We kick off the festivities on Christmas Eve when Malcolm takes the children to see the Carols downtown at Chase Bank. I stay home and finish up any wrapping and enjoy a few moments of quiet before the craziness hits. We then head to Christmas Mass followed by a dinner of beef wellington with Malcolm’s family. The kids want to hurry home to sleep because Santa is coming (the only time they ever choose to go to bed early). Surprisingly our children tend to sleep in on Christmas Morning until around 8:30. Once they are up we have a family breakfast celebrating Jesus’ birthday. When they can no longer contain their excitement we head to the living room for present time! Then we head to my parents’ for lunch to celebrate with my side of the family and then back home for dinner to celebrate with Malcolm’s family. Lots of celebrating…such a fun time!
I am so excited to have this video of Christmas morning to look back on. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
