The anticipation of Christmas morning is always a big build. For me, as we know, it starts months in advance.
Each year growing up, there were certain triggers that told us we were getting closer to Christmas. I think I have mentioned all of them in my top ten. I was always excited for Christmas morning, and this year was no different.
While I don't sleep well that night (same goes for this year), the morning is always worth it. This year the kids jumped into bed with me, and then the four of us headed downstairs to see if Santa showed up or not.
The look in the kids eyes said it all. Joy really.
I loved that they were sooooo excited about their gifts. Not just from Santa, but all the great things that they received from us, their grandparents, uncles and others.
