Since we have alternative plans this year for Christmas we opened gifts and did stockings early. The kids had a slumber party under the tree on "Christmas Eve" and we had to tip toe around them to fill the stockings.
The kids had a great time opening gifts. They had all put quite a bit of thought into the gifts they bought for each other (they draw names) and it was fun to see them taking pleasure in seeing the gifts enjoyed by the recipient. We have some very thoughtful kids.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing and enjoying a quiet day together and playing with some of their new toys.
Mr. R got a robotic arm which was cool, but he had to put it all together. That took him most of the day. It was just the sort of project he likes, and we were happy to see that it did provide just enough of a challenge for him.
