The kids each only wanted one little gift this year (well, ty was an exception..lol)...so, it made chirstmas fun when they were given the one thing they really wanted.
We love and agree with the "experiences" gift...we do, camps, travels, trips, etc...but we still love getting our kids gifts.
we always do our little families christmas on christmas eve....this year, we did a breakfast and stayed in lounge wear all day...nothing fancy...just relaxing, enjoying each other.
chritmas morning...the kids woke up to santa...
Ty got his: xbox one/madden game, and nerf gun,
Hanna: "purse" and brush keychain
Claire: "maker" aka...kitchen baking mixer
and a bunch of other stuff..
They were all so excited..which makes it all worth it.
from their big gifts to the fruit snacks stocking stuffer...each year it just gets better.
this christmas was also a little different feeling bc so much sickness was going around...and jake and claire feel victim...especially claire. bless her little heart had a major breathing/lung flaire up and just can't stop coughing...after numerous meds, dr trips, breathing tx's, etc...christmas eve we were back at dr. but that z pack really helped her...but, it was a weird feeling. when you try and get in the christmas spirit but when you don't feel well or your kid...makes it difficult.
but, we still had a wonderful wonderful, blessed christmas and we are so very thankful for all our many blessings.
