Christmas at Home

We decided to wait and open our family gifts at home. The kids wanted to stretch Christmas out as long as possible. Leon didn't want to haul all of our presents plus the presents for my family out to Mom's, only to have to lug all of our presents plus what my family gave the kids back home.

I admit I was hesitant. I wanted to open all of our presents on Christmas Day. It turned out to be a beautiful weekend though. Leon and I put all of the presents under the tree and filled stockings on Sunday night.

Then really really early on Monday morning, Leon dragged everyone out of bed to start our "Christmas Day".

I put as much time and thought into stuffing stockings as I do buying presents. There is usually a really nice gift, candy, "smell-good", and several small things the kids have either been needing or wanting.

We usually go through them, youngest to oldest.

I love how happy my children are to receive books.
