We have made it... the presents were put out, cookies for Santa, Reindeer food for the Reindeer. We were awaken at 7:30am, which was ok, except I think the kids were actually up much earlier than that. The kids had a lot of fun opening presents and having a great time with their Aunt & Uncles and Grandparents. I think they were crazy with over stimulation and didn't know which way was up. The toys and food were totally to much :) That being said... talking to the kids last night and today about the Reason for this Special Day was nice. Even Ryan could tell me about the Nativity and Jesus' Birthday.
Oh... we watched the movie The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, by Barbara Robinson. We read the book first last week and I sent away for the DVD and oh, it was so cute. We sat together after everyone left and enjoyed the movies and the Christmas Message it had. The book was great, but so was the movie (even if it was from the 70's).
So... the year is coming to an end. We will begin talking about the new year, resolutions, and what the New Year may bring.
From Our Home to Yours
Merry Christmas and Blessings to All
