Christmas Day goes the same every year – we call it tradition…
The kids will wake up early, they will enjoy their stockings.
We will gather in the lounge room, Peter will read the story surrounding Jesus’ birth, we will give thanks to God.
Before breakfast we just open presents from us – from us to the kids, and Peter and I will exchange gifts.
Breakfast is our one meal we eat at the table on Christmas day.
We quickly clean up before we head off to church. The kids are in a play. This year "What God wants for Christmas" (hint: He wants your heart) We will mingle with folk after church over a cuppa before coming home for lunch.
Lunch is finger food, eaten in the lounge while we open more gifts. We try and catch a bit of a nanna-nap mid afternoon!
Around 5.00pm we have folk coming around to join us for dinner – we call it an open house, where we invite all and any who want to be with people to come around and bring their left overs.
We fall into bed tired but happy.
