Since the big kids are now officially on Christmas Break and my husband is off work too, I won't be on the computer much. Christmas day is my most very favorite day out of the entire year! It's truly magical to see the kids open their presents and just have the joy of their excitement fill the room! This year they're predicting a white Christmas, how wonderful will that be? I can't recall the last white Christmas we had! I'm SO excited!
I'm normally in the kitchen the entire day, but I don't mind it one bit! I always fix a big ham dinner with the works. I asked everyone if they wanted anything special for Christmas dinner, and all the kids said my homemade rolls with the honey butter! So out of everything that is what they have remembered from past dinners! I asked if they wanted to fix their own homemade pizzas like they did last year for Christmas Eve dinner, they all looked at me and said, "I guess". Like it was just something they would do if they had too, I guess we do homemade pizza too much for it to be a real treat for them! I may have to come up with something else to do, or add something "cool" or "fun" to do with it.
On Christmas Eve the kids always open their presents from each brother. I started that years ago when the kids didn't have much money (still don't at such young ages), so they would always be super excited to open any present before Christmas. You wouldn't believe how amazing a $.50 toy or a $.25 book looks on Christmas Eve, LOL!
Someday I hope I will see this little perfect thing underneath my Christmas treewhen my real babies are big, then I can go back to dog babies, LOL!
I hope your house is filled with that magical feeling that only Christmas through the eyes of a child can bring! Merry Christmas!!
