Back at our house:
The kids give their gifts to each other on Christmas Eve. And I know I sound like a broken record when I say this, but it's my favorite part of Christmas. But if you look at these pictures you'll see why.The air turns thick and soft with their love for each other.
And that's about the best thing in the world to watch when you're the mom.
They get so antsy with excitement when they get to give that gift they worked hard for and chose themselves.
And of course it's not Christmas Eve without the nativity:...and the new Christmas P.J.s...
...and "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" read with enthusiasm,
Before snuggling up in their beds with visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads.
