One of my favorite parts about Christmas growing up was 'the great morning reveal'. In our family we designed a way for all to be surprised at the same time, have no peeking and a whole lotta fun! It is a tradition we have adopted in our family now too. Christmas Eve we color a big piece of paper, hang it up at night and bust through in the morning. As you can see the magic has not been lost on my children either.
Christmas morning at our home is so sweet. It is simple, loving and wonderful. I try so hard to not go over board, but half way through presents I realize I could do even less and my children would still be so happy. It is so much fun to be a parent on Christmas morning and watch the excitement of your kids and feel joy in the moment. This year was just super duper fabulous!!!
