"Mommy, Daddy! aren't you awake? It's Christmas!!!! I wonder if Santa came? Can we go downstairs now....plllleeeeeeaaaassseeeee?" All of this along with them beating us with a large cardboard gift paper roll they found on the floor in our room.
After dragging our tired selves out of the bed we made it downstairs. I thought for sure the kids would try to dive right in but they were quite polite. Munchkin was not too disappointed about not getting the Hannah Montana guitar she had her eye on but did get a small (inexpensive) digital camera. This one is going no where near Little Man and a creek. She was thrilled!
As Bobby handed Little Man his first gift he said in his sweet little voice "Thank you!" I think he was a little overwhelmed but was so excited to open presents.
I love the joy of Christmas morning. The anticipation, the suspense and the surprise! It makes staying up wrapping and doing all of that worth it.
The best part is knowing our kids understand the presents are fun but it is all really about Jesus birth and that we give presents (at least in our house) because the Wise Men brought gifts to Jesus.
I hope you have a Merry Christmas! Enjoy spending time with your family!
