We were up late on Christmas Eve so I wasn’t sure how early the kids would wake up. Ava came into our room and laid down sometime after 6:00. We woke up about 6:45 and she told us all about what she’d seen under the Christmas tree!
We waited for a while and Reed was still sleeping soundly so Zach and I both took a shower and got ready for our day since we were leaving shortly after opening gifts. When Reed finally woke up, we got him up and let them open their gifts. He was excited for what he saw when he came out!
We got to Zach’s grandma’s house and were joined by his parents, sister and boyfriend, niece, aunt and cousin. We had a delicious lunch and exchanged gifts. The kids had fun opening gifts for most everyone!
By the time we left, the kids were exhausted. Ava had napped on the way there, but Reed didn’t. They both slept for about an hour on the way home. We had lovely Christmas celebrations all around. We’re so blessed to have so many family members to spend the holidays with and do not take it for granted. We’re thankful we can spend the holidays with everyone and make memories for the kids that they will cherish as they grow!
