What has everyone been up to? I'm sure everyone has been busy getting ready for Christmas. I am happy to report that we are done shopping! I am not sure who is more excited for Christmas the kids or I! Ever since the kids were little they had their list of things they wanted. We usually got the items on the list (within reason).
Last year my husband and I thought of gifts that were not even on their wish list. I don't even think the kids ever asked for these. Last year we got them each a tablet. They absolutely loved them!! Well this year is the same story. I am so excited I could almost burst. But because my blog goes directly to Facebook my kids might see this so I must remain quiet.
I mentioned to my kids that perhaps we will let them open all of their gifts now so we can just sleep in on Christmas. Hannah chimed in and said, "But Mom its the rules! You have to open them on Christmas." I asked her who made up the rules? To which she says, "Grandpas and Grandmas from long ago." Haha I love her so much!
How do you prepare for Christmas? For the first year in many years we are ready for it. Usually we are out shopping still on Christmas Eve. This year my husband and I will be able to relax and enjoy everything Christmas has to offer. I honestly think that is what I'm most excited about.
