The joy of spending Christmas with kids started last night when we started prepping for Santa’s arrival. I forgot about the excitement leading up to Christmas Day, which must rank as the best day of the year for most kids. The girls set out chocolate cake, milk with a bendy straw, a small bowl of popcorn, a butterscotch candy and 7 carrots for Santa’s reindeer. Along with hand written notes from each of them.
Part 2 of this story is what happens after the girls went to sleep. Presents were dug out of hidden locations including under the house and in bedroom closets. And of course, I had to play the part of Santa that involves eating the cake and drinking the milk. Ho ho ho!
This morning we woke up at 7:30 am to the excitement of new Polly Pocket roller coasters, art kits, stuffed animals, chocolate, Disney movies and more. After gifts we binged on homemade apple cinnamon pancakes and sausage. Yum. Yum. Yum.
Bring on the Christmas burger bar!
