Christmas eve was a pretty relaxing day. We made sure to try and explain what was happening that night to Blaiden and I think he was pretty excited by bed time. We got to open up our new pajamas, set out a plate of cookies and milk for Santa, carrots for the reindeer, and even sprinkled some glittery reindeer food out on the front lawn so they could find our house.
Blaiden woke up around 7 and wasn't to happy about it. Fred and I both when into his room and he was crying I took a video thinking it would be so cute to see him walk out to all the presents but he was very unhappy for the first few minutes. This woke up Adilene so once everyone was happy I fed Adilene and we told Blaiden he could open his stocking. This turned into him opening all of our stockings. When Adilene was done it was time to move on to the presents under the tree.
This Christmas was my favorite one so far. We all just sat around the tree and opened gifts for almost 2 hours. Adilene was loving all the paper and Blaiden would play with everything he opened before he would move on to the next thing. The kids were spoiled with all the gifts they received and loved all the new things they could play with.
Everyday Blaiden kept asking if Santa was coming again. I was ready to take down the tree because the kids would not stay away from it so 2 days after Christmas it came down along with all the decorations. A few gifts came in the mail and so we had another night of opening gifts.
This entire holiday season was wonderful! It truly is so much more fun when you have children.
