When we got home from the party the kids were so very excited and they put their special cookies on our special celebrating Jesus' birthday plate and milk in the cup for Santa. The kids also put oatmeal in sandwich bags because they thought the reindeer would be hungry too.
We have a tradition of getting the kids "special" Christmas pajamas that they open up before they go to bed on Christmas Eve so they will be all ready for opening gifts in the morning. The kids were so excited about their PJ's that I actually got a picture of all 3 of them with their faces all showing and smiles on all 3. This type of picture never happens so this is priceless.
The kids started playing around and dancing in their new pajamas and it was so cute. Jaxson was so excited and he didn't even have any idea what was going to happen Christmas morning.It did not take Jaxson long at all to figure out that he loved this opening gifts and having new toys inside thing. Jaxson would have opened presents all day if he could have. He also now has toys that are meant for BOYS and not girls.
I got a very special gift this year. I never, ever buy anything for myself unless I just have to. I have wanted a new microwave for years now but I just wouldn't spend the money on myself. I got a microwave for Christmas!!! I no longer have to use the dorm size one I bought when I was 18 that I bought with a winning scratch off lottery ticket.
