Usually Christmas is a chaotic sort of mess, as we mix in both of our extended family's celebrations with ours.
It's a lot easier than it sounds, since our families of origin are quite the opposite as far as timing goes.
This year is even easier.
One family bumped Christmas Eve back a day.
After eating, the kids played Bingo for prizes.
Mostly the prizes were sugary goodness. But there were also some little three-drawer containers that will be brilliant for storing school supplies. Both Yonah and Arabelle wound up with one.
I doubt I've ever seen them love something so much.
Arabelle is still snuggling with hers.
