Oh well. We love Christmas morning around here, in all of it's chaos, mayhem, excitement and messes.
For a few years now we've had the kids draw a siblings name to purchase a gift for. My kids LOVE planning, shopping, wrapping and presenting their gifts for each other. It really is a highlight of Christmas morning for me. I especially loved seeing Luke and Ellie plan, shop and wrap each others gifts. Though not exactly the siblings that get along the best, they really put a lot of thought and love into each other's gifts. (a cowboy hat for Luke and a makeup set for Ellie)
singing and conducting, and hasn't stopped since.
My favorite quote of Christmas morning, "Shall I open this for Hank and Hazel or take it over and let them eat it open?"
Goats on Christmas morning? Whoever would have thunk it?!?
And so this is Christmas! (insert John Lennon's voice here)
(That's the extent of my holiday listening anymore. 7pm Christmas Day, Christmas music is over for me!)
