christmas day at our house

When we first had children, we spent Christmas rushing from one house to the other, trying to make all of our family happy, and in the meantime, making our children very UNhappy.  One year I declared that we were going to stay home for Christmas morning and anyone who wanted to see the kids was welcome to come for breakfast.  And that has become our most loved Christmas tradition- a huge breakfast with family and friends all crowded into our home.  We have learned that it is best if our children and grandchildren arrive first, before the crowd, so that we have some quiet time with them before the chaos of the over-full house takes over.  But it is a chaos full of love and sharing, and we wouldn’t trade it for anything!
