I love the traditions we have now. Three gifts like Jesus received. Jesus' birthday on Christmas Eve complete with presents to Jesus and cake. Christmas Eve presents (book and PJs). Unwrapped Santa gift, and waiting until parents are awake to open the rest of the presents one by one. I love the silly clues I write on each child's present and making them guess what's inside. Cinnamon roll braided Christmas tree - yum!!
This year we tweaked a little.
After writing our presents to Jesus, I read them out loud, and then we prayed. The kids initiated going around in circle and praying about what we are thankful for (is this starting to sound like we're getting our holidays mixed up - Thanksgiving, Easter, birthday, Christmas...??).
Anyway, this was a great Christmas. I'm only mildly dreading the next week and a half of the kids being home from school.
