Some of us were sick for awhile before Christmas, so I was extra grateful everyone woke up feeling good on Christmas morning.
We always tell the kids the night before Christmas what time they are allowed to wake us up! No 5 o'clock in the morning for me…I need my sleep. haha! Kayla and Lily are always so anxious and can hardly wait until the allotted time to start pounding on our door!
Once everyone is awake we read the Christmas story and then the kids take turns opening their presents. We have manicotti for dinner and spend the rest of the day playing games, watching movies, and just enjoying being together.
Lily loved having her own little Christmas tree. I had to help her a little with the decorating or all the ornaments would have been in the same area!
I helped Lily make this simple Christmas countdown calendar. She tore off a little square each day until Christmas.
