Christmas was magical this year for our family. The kiddos enjoyed every minute and we wish we could hit the rewind button and do it all over. Jonathan couldn’t sleep on Christmas Eve and kept asking if he could go downstairs to get something to eat at 10:30 pm (to see if Santa came or not). Santa definitely arrived! The boys were up at 5:00 am, but we didn’t start opening presents until 5:45 am. The kiddos were so grateful for all of their presents. We had a fun filled morning of taking toys out of their packages, finding batteries, and then the cleanup of course!
Jonathan got tons of little legos (which he is currently obsessed with), Jordan a play vacuum and race car track set, and Jasmine teethers and the cutest, softest baby doll from her Mimi. Another gift that was a hit is play costumes. This year the boys got firefighter costumes and played in them all day!
We had ham, mashed potatoes, carrots, and rolls for Christmas dinner. My hard working husband had to work Christmas Day so we waited for his arrival and enjoyed a beautiful meal together. Gathering around the dinner table and enjoying one another’s company are things I love most about the Holidays.
We plan on savoring the next few days and leaving our Christmas tree on all day before we head into the New Year. I hope your Christmas was pure magic and joy!
