A few kids woke up at 2 AM and made sure they woke the rest of them before sneaking down stairs. I hollered from my bed to "get back to bed until the sun comes up". I heard many tiny feet running for their lives back to bed. They managed to fall back to sleep after an hour or so and got up around 7:45. Most have handled their day very well. A few have whined quite a bit making a person wonder if they can be happy, ever.
We decided not to do a traditional large meal today but to put a few things on and let them nibble as they want. For breakfast, we always have French Toast w Strawberry Sauce and homemade Whipped Cream. I put on 6lbs of meatballs in a yummy sauce and am about to get busy on a Cheese Fondue with tons of bread and veggies and fruit to dip in it. We have cake, candy, and other goodies for or sweet tooth.
Merry Christmas to you all!
