We started a new Christmas tradition this year! I don't remember where Hubby got the idea, but he thought it would be fun if each year at Christmas time, we spent a night in sleeping bags around the Christmas tree.
The kids were so excited!
Well, Josh and Sarah were. Megan was too little, so she had to still go to bed in her crib.
We let them stay up a little late to watch a Charlie Brown Christmas movie on TV and then we tucked them all in and shared some of our favorite Christmas memories before heading to bed.
In all truthfulness, the storytelling ended around 9:30 when Josh said, "I'm tired. Can we just go to sleep?"
So we all settled in our sleeping bags for a good night's sleep. On the hard floor. Okay, maybe not the best night's sleep, but a lot of fun.
Any guesses on who was the first one asleep?
I had one squirmy, snuggly, love bug on one side of me and another squirmy, snuggly, love bug on the other side of me. It wasn't me. It wasn't said squirmy, snuggly love bugs Josh or Sarah.
It was hubby.
But we were all soon behind him. And we actually slept fairly well. The kids, in fact, didn't wake up until 8:30!
I'd say it was a success and we'll do it again next year!
What about you? Any fun or different traditions your family has at Christmastime?
