Every year I try to figure out how I can extend Christmas. I am (or I think I am) a firm believer in waiting until after Thanksgiving. This year I almost didn't. I just love to see how magical it is for the kids and by the end, we are never ready to put it all way!
The kids were up at 6. We had to hold them back to get our cameras ready before they plowed through the Santa Trap in the hallway. Jack was very disappointed when he didn't see light sabers right away. He tossed everything out of his stocking in about 3 seconds flat, while Lucy sat with her stocking for a 1/2 an hour examining each item. It was fun to see the differences between them this year.
