Christmas morning. Oh what a special time it is! First and foremost, Baby Jesus entered the world and thanks to Him, you and I are able to live blessed and undeserving lives here on Earth. I am thankful for Him everyday, but Christmas morning I make sure and say a special prayer as soon as I wake up. And immediately after that, I round up my siblings ((I’m the oldest of 5!)) and we go sit at the top of the stairs and wait for Dad to get the video camera ready. Haha! Once he’s all set up and we’ve sung at least one Christmas carol for the camera, we all rush down the steps to the “yellow room” in our house to see if Santa has visited. There’s a 14 year difference between me and the youngest so I have grown up watching the magic of Christmas through all my siblings eyes and it is one of the things I appreciate most about being the oldest. Nothing like seeing a little kid on Christmas morning!
Mind you, as we all race down the steps EVERY Christmas morning, we are all in matching or coordinating PJs! You must look cute for all those Christmas morning photos, right?! These Swoozie’s night shirts are exactly what I’m talking about!
Just after the excitement of Santa, I have to grab me some coffee!! I hate to admit it, but I’m an #atleast3cups kind of girl at this point. Might as well call me a Gilmore 😉 The size of this mug is what sold me because you can fit at least 2 cups of coffee in there! And the saying on the front could not be more perfect for Christmas morning.
Finally, I usually eat some breakfast, get ready to head to Grannie Annie’s for Christmas lunch, and then put away my gifts. Each year my Uncle Ronny gives an ornament to everyone in our family. I love that he does this because I now have a little memory to look back on from each year in my life and he’s also given me a good head start for decorating my own family tree one day! Haha.
