Merry Christmas!

No matter how old I get, I still get butterflies on Christmas morning. It's still exciting to run downstairs and see gifts all wrapped under the tree. Now I have nephews (ages 4 and almost 2) so I can share in their excitement as they tear the paper off. However, I still annoy my brother because I unwrap my gifts slowly as to appreciate them but I'm always the last one to finish unwrapping gifts. So now my mom has changed the tradition to we HAVE to eat breakfast before opening gifts. We make my Dad's dad recipe for Belgian waffles (so good... I look forward to them all year!). My mom already created a schedule:

8:30 a.m. Traditional breakfast - Pop's waffles

9:00 a.m.  Gift opening

10:00 Shrek Movie/Zach nap

1:00 Dinner

Game time (trivia, scrabble, etc.)

3:00  Desert served

Family movie to be determined (suggestions welcome)

5:00 leftovers.......

What traditions does your family have on Christmas?
