This year for the first time since I've been working I was able to take off Christmas Eve and Christmas giving me a 4 day weekend.   It was great being able to spend the day with Steve and the boys and go to church without rushing out of work.  We made Christmas cookies for Santa and maybe a few for us and the boys sprinkled reindeer food in the front yard (another tradition)

The boys woke up on Christmas morning and we had a nice breakfast and Steve read the Bible for the boys.  We've always tried to make sure the boys understand the true meaning of Christmas - that Jesus Christ was born on Christmas and he is our Savior.    The presents, Christmas tree, decorations, and lights are just a fun way to celebrate but have nothing to do with Christ's birth.  We also sing happy birthday to Jesus after we pray and read the Bible.  I think that helps the boys understand a little more too.

Of course after we opened presents at our house we went to Mom and Dad's for another round.  Way too many presents for the boys this year.
