Felt like changing the mood here tonight! I thought we could all share our traditions of Christmas morning and maybe get some ideas from others at the same time. Honestly, now that I think about it ours is getting a little boring and I wanna change it up so share your tradition and give me some ideas on how to spice ours up! :)
Here's our usual Christmas morning...
Kids are up bright and early eye-balling the presents under the tree. After a short bit they come wake us up saying Merry Christmas! We get up and let the paper ripping begin, taking photos and videos of it. While they play with new toys and things I fix breakfast. After breakfast we get dressed and head over to my mother in laws. We all exchange gifts there and visit, then she makes lunch. She always has a few new animated, dancing, singing toys that we all watch and laugh at. Kids sing and dance along with them. We go back home and relax watching movies(usually Christmas oriented movies). Thats about it!........ Your turn!!

Making me hungry for breakfast food now!
Well, even though it may not be an eventful day of fun Im sure the father in law will appreciate everyone going to see him and think of him on Christmas :)

Our Christmas is different from year to year, depending on our plans. We have a blended family (his, mine, ours) and extended family that don't live in the city we live, they live all over the country, so it kind of gets shared around. So it can be hard to have traditions. One of ours is definitely a pancakes, eggs, bacon "brunch", no matter where we happen to be.

Unfortunately this year we will be spending part of our day in the hospice visiting a very angry father-in-law (he wants to go home but can't). That's going to totally suck. It will be hard on the kids. But we are trying to organise a lot of fun things later in the evening so that it won't dominate the day.
