We had a pretty low-key Christmas this year. I know it seems hermit-ish, but I really like just staying home for the holidays. I love relaxing with the kids and not having a time schedule to deal with. It starts to get stressful (for me anyway) when we start putting unrealistic expectations and arbitrary timelines on the kids. So this year we opted to just stay home, as we have for the past couple of years. And let me say, it was perfect. The boys are at an age where they can understand that the MEANING of Christmas isn't presents, and while they were pretty excited about their presents, there was plenty of talk about Baby Jesus as well. After we opened presents, we got to spend the day enjoying them together. (Disclaimer: I did not actually enjoy the indoor scooter riding, but I managed to tolerate it for three whole days before banishing the scooters to the garage.)

Oh yeah, and the boys stayed in their pajamas ALL DAY, in case you couldn't tell!
