Christmas always comes and goes so quickly! I’m setting here this morning watching my grandson play with his hot wheels garage from Santa and patiently waiting for my granddaughter to wake up.
We started our Christmas Eve by taking the grandkids to see Santa at the mall. Cameron has visited him every year since he was born and this was Kenleigh’s first visit. She was all smiles and waving at Santa while I was holding her but soon as I handed her off to him the tears started rolling. Santa cried along with her…
Once back home we entertained family throughout the day. Jason’s mom and Grandma Joyce brought candy, cookies and fudge for us to enjoy.
The kids decorated Christmas cookies for Santa and so did my big guys! Husband and son…
My mom started a Christmas Eve tradition many many years ago that is a favorite. We make her egg rolls for dinner every Christmas Eve. Even Rodney & Marjorie ( my brother & sister in law ) make sure to make it for dinner every year just for the egg rolls. I am all about tradition. I am old school and love it that way. My family always stays the night with each other so we can wake up Christmas morning together and celebrate Jesus’s birthday!
No presents are ever under the tree until the kids go to sleep waiting for Santa to visit. Once asleep all the adults start bringing out the gifts. Santa is a big deal in our household! We believe in the magic of Christmas and the joy it brings the young ones to believe. And we always tell the story of Jesus birth for He is the reason for this holiday season! Christmas is all about the joy in the children’s eyes and hearts!
My grandson asked Santa for a hampster this year for Christmas! The happiness on his face, priceless. He named him Z!
We all enjoyed our very early 4am morning! My brother in law is a fireman and had a 7am shift. So we were sure to be up early enough so he enjoyed it without being rushed.
Kenleigh loved her first Christmas 🎄
My parents got all the grandkids a huge swing for a big tree at their farm. Once it is up I will be sure to upload pictures
Cameron ended up getting sick while opening presents. A 24 hour bug it seems because he is much better today.
But he ended up sleeping most of the day away, he woke late in the evening for a bit to enjoy some toys before heading back to sleep.
I made a breakfast scramble of fried tators, scrambled eggs and bacon for lunch for everyone.
It was a relaxing wonderful Christmas day!
