My Favorite Part Of Christmas!

Everyone has their favorite tradition or part of Christmas, and mine is Christmas morning. I remember when I was a child, my brother and I would wake up sometime during the night (think 3 or 4 am), sneak into the living room, survey the goods, eat a bit of candy, then go back to bed for a few more hours. We just couldn't wait to see what Santa had brought!

Now that I have my own babes, this continues to be my favorite part of Christmas. I love seeing the joy on their faces when they discover something that they asked for, and then the surprise when they find something that they didn't. This is Monkey's 4th Christmas and Bug's 1st, so we're not yet to the days when they wake us up. And sadly, the RedHead and I aren't smart enought to just let them sleep...we had to wake Monkey up because "we" couldn't wait to see what Santa had brought!

Another tradition we've started since Monkey was born is to have my Mama over Christmas morning and the RedHead cooks breakfast for us. We had delicious Biscuits and Gravy and a pastry braid. Then after breakfast we open up the family gifts to each other. It was a wonderful Christmas season, and I hope everyone had a great one as well!
