Oh the joy of Christmas!
It has been such a perfect day. Simple, slow, satisfying.
We just got back last night from several hectic days visiting family. It was a treat but we are all exhausted. So today we are enjoying the simple pleasures of life.
I spent so much time shopping, wrapping, preparing for this big day. And my kids didn't disappoint. It took us close to 5 hours to unwrap our gifts (and there weren't THAT many). Zander & Kaya savored each moment. They played with their big Santa gifts at first for probably 30 minutes or so.....and then we finally moved on to smaller gifts and stockings. They wanted to stop and enjoy every little thing. One smaller gift and a few stocking surprises and it was time for breakfast.......then time for a nap.
During their morning naps, Matt and I enjoyed opening our gifts together. He spoiled me wonderfully with a beautiful necklace!
Once they got up we slowly opened more gifts and played in between. I'm so glad we got to enjoy the whole day together and didn't rush through our material gifts and our gift of time with each other.
In our slow, easy, day we are all now getting ready for more naps. It is cold, rainy, and the perfect lighting for a long snuggly nap on the couch.
Once again.....what a perfect day.......simple, slow, satisfying.
