I like to split up presents and food so we can all enjoy everything, especially gifts. Here are the kids digging through their stockings in their adorable Christmas Morning PJs because I also, apparently, have made this a thing as well.
We always have to get some family pictures in, and testing the placement and settings has become a game in itself.
We ate early dinner so we could have dessert early enough for the kids to burn off some of the sugar…
And opened presents with enough time to help them burn off that sugar and to play with and forget about some of the gifts before going to bed. Though that green thing in the last picture is still in play. It’s supposed to encourage creative play, and boy does it. They can step on it, spin in it, wear it and look like a green-helmeted Dark Helmet, argue over it -so much fun.
