Christmas Chaos

D has 3 nieces and 2 nephews aged 2- 12. We celebrated Christmas morning with homemade breakfast - scones, crepes and bacon.

With so many presents under the tree, the kids were extremely well behaved and sat through breakfast. When they were allowed to start opening the presents, it was utter chaos - ripping of paper, exclamations of "this is awesome!", "cool" ...

I'd forgotten what it was like to be a kid on Christmas morning and have so many presents waiting under the tree.

Christmas is a time of celebration - being together with loved ones, for the kids - getting new toys and books. Let's not forget the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Christ- which often gets lost in the crazy, frantic shopping for food and presents as well as the parties.
