Christmas Day was full of presents, food, and fun! Presents for 26 people is a lot of stuff, and also takes a long time to get through! Traditionally, we started the kids off with their stockings.
All in a row
After stockings, it was time to move on to Santa gifts. Santa definitely came and spoiled the kiddos!

Growing up, we would go around and watch each person open up a present one at a time. It is fun to see what everyone else got, and also lets the day last a little longer. But obviously that was not going to happen with the kids! So we would set them up with one present at a time and then let them have at it.

We took a break after the kids’ Santa gifts to have breakfast. We had the usual: bran muffins, bacon, and orange juice. Grandma and Grandpa had a little gift for all of the kiddos.
After breakfast, it was time for the adults to open some of their gifts. Then the kids had some more from Grandma and Grandpa (yes, totally spoiled!)
We spent the rest of the day cleaning up, relaxing, and playing with our new things! It was a wonderful day!
We feel so blessed to be part of a family who loves each other so much and loves to spend time with each other. And thank you to my parents for making it such a memorable Christmas for us and our kids!
