We had a lovely Christmas - I had everything done ahead of time so we had a leisurely Christmas Eve, decorated cookies with the kids, to leave out for Santa, then they each opened 1 gift (new blankets for their beds) and their Dad read them a couple of stories before bed. Once they were asleep Andy and I only had to place the wrapped gifts beneath the tree and fill the stockings. Much better than last year when I was up half the night wrapping. This year I was able to get a good night's sleep and enjoyed Christmas morning so much more
Angus had a good time opening gifts this year. He was more interested in the toddler toys his little sister got though. His favorite thing overall was a big cardboard box my gift came in

Things went pretty well here. Abby was able to hold it together for Christmas day with only getting mildly irritated with her siblings. She usually opens her presents and takes them to her room immediately because she doesn't want anyone looking at or touching her things but she didn't do that this year

Love the pics...cardboard boxes are the best. My dad always said that all you gotta do is give a child a cardboard box and they're happy

We had a good Christmas here. Jay did pretty well but once he got tired then it did not go so well. Jay had no intesrest in opening gifts just wanted to play with toys that were already opended.
