My in laws are spending Christmas in Michigan and we will be in Mexico, so tonight we are having an early Christmas celebration with them
I actually think this works great with kids. Stagger out the gifts, some years when the kids open all their presents on the same day they are overwhelmed and don't touch half of them. This year they will have round 1 of gifts tonight and round 2 Christmas morning.
Saturday morning we have our annual breakfast with Santa
this one from 2 years ago always makes me laugh
Saturday afternoon I am going to finish a few things
I have promised to make cookies so my kids can decorate them...
they literally ask everyday.
pack, so I can enjoy Christmas
I will reward myself for all my hard work with dinner and drinks Saturday night with friends
Sunday we have another breakfast with Santa
at my daughter's school
a Christmas piano recital by my 2 older kids
