This was our first year to host Christmas Eve, and the first year our oldest was completely "into" Santa, Christmas lights, decorating cookies... what joy!
But I will say this,
Why didn't my husband start assembling the swing set/fort/rock wall/ slide BEFORE Christmas Eve?!
This old girl can't "do" all-nighters anymore.
Here's a little project I whipped up to keep the kids busy while you recover, too.
If your little ones are just learning to write or if they have a hard time with knowing what to say in a thank-you note, a fill-in-the-blank approach will get their brains a-going.
Easy Thank-You's for the Kiddos
Happy New Year (2011 already... wowza!),
