We had a wonderful Christmas! The kids slept in until 8AM, which was so nice being my husband and I did not make it to bed until after 1AM. We had a lazy morning that started with a big breakfast followed by a reading from the book of Luke. Then we all took turns opening gifts – allowing time between each round for the kids to focus on the gift they had just received. It was so nice and kept the kids from getting overwhelmed.
Our day finished up with a dessert buffet – a family who we are good friends with us braved the snowy roads to join us. We had so much fun opening gifts, snacking on desserts, having a short devotion followed by singing “Happy Birthday” to Jesus. Our night ended with an impromptu snow ball fight in our driveway.
