When Carrie and Randy’s gift arrived at our house, Jenna decided it would be the first one which would be opened. We played a game of Monopoly though there’s at least 20 games in our possession that I’d rather play. After I lost and Jenna forfeited out of boredom, we turned on the Muppet Christmas Carol though we really don’t have a great copy. I fell asleep while it played.
We had planned to open our first gift on Christmas Eve after we watched “It’s A Wonderful Life” but since I had fallen asleep during Muppets, Jenna decided to open the gift before “It’s A Wonderful Life” started. It was a game!
Because of the time, we decided we would play in the morning instead of right then.Jenna decided to go to bed after only an hour into the movie. Between 9:30 and 10:00 last night Roland retrieved the presents from my closet. I spread the gifts beneath the tree. We filled the stockings and finished with the movie. When “It’s A Wonderful Life” ended, I went into the bedroom, though I don’t remember Roland coming into the room until possibly an hour later. I don’t know why.
When he did get into the bedroom, he read a bit before turning off the light. At midnight Jenna opened her door and asked if it was time to open presents. She gets very excited. I think she must have left her room shortly after that as I noticed there were more gifts placed beneath the tree and in our socks. I love it when my children get into the Christmas spirit and each attempt to play Santa themselves.
