Once their eyes were open everyone was too excited to go back to sleep, anyway. I mean Santa came!!!
Cleaning up isn't as important as showing your gifts to your siblings . . .
After snacking all day dinner is always a welcomed feast.
The conversations never stop. I found it funny that Twin Adorable asked if I would switch spots with her so she and Twin Beautiful could carry on their conversations.
As we sat around still talking Pooker returned and the feast was on again!
Let's be very honest. Our house has had to be very (very) clean because it is on the market. On an event like Christmas there is not help. Even the cleanest of houses don't look clean. I used to feel like I was failing because the back room was messy while the front room looked perfect. I don't any more. I have learned that Christmas is messy behind the scenes. When I watch those Hallmark movies with the picture perfect Christmas unwrapping I often wonder to myself which room they are hiding their Christmas Mess in. It is all worth it.
