.. It’s amazing how much resources and energy we put into Christmas for it to be over in a blink. How can it be over? I truly love Christmas and although it can get stressful at times, I just love it! Then Christmas day comes and goes and it’s like wait.. What happened?
The kids enjoyed Christmas but always look forward to our Christmas eve traditions. I am pretty sure they look forward to Christmas eve more than the actual Christmas day. WE start with opening our new Christmas pajamas and then putting them on. We spend the entire day in our new PJ’s and just have a blast.
I tried to get all cutesy this year and take a sweet photo of the kids in their pajamas. Well, you see how that turned out. Why can’t they just cooperate with pictures, oh and one is missing. She is inside crying her eyes out about something . Don’t worry, she’s okay. There is always someone crying at my house.
Next it’s on to baking, and baking we did! I’m talking cookies, muffins, cakes and more cookies. WE love decorating cookies for Santa.
We end the night with a reading of The night before Christmas and then it’s off to bed and unfortunately more work for the parents. Sure that doll house looks simple enough to put together. It’s 2am people! 2a.m and we can finally go to bed! Damn dollhouse, bahambug!
Next thing you know it’s 6am and those little people are waking you up! We revel in out new gifts with joy and excitement and just like that its over! Just like that! I will say, the day after Christmas is always one of my favorites because I can drink my coffee and relax while the kids play peacefully with their new toys. It’s the one day of the year I can count on no sibling fights 🙂 How do you spend Christmas? Are you excited or happy for Christmas to be over each year?
