Twas the Night Before Christmas...
We have made it a tradition to let the kids sleep on our floor on Christmas Eve. We mainly started this because of the way our house is set up. The kids are on one side of the living room, us on the other. We like to watch their faces as they come out to see what Santa left, so this was the solution. Plus the fact they think it is GREAT fun! We decided to let the little girls join in on the slumber party this year. That was not so much fun. Mavery was over tired so we were reminded of the days right after she came home. Night terrors, screaming out, thrashing all over. Not a good thing with a room full of kids! Then at one point when she was quiet, Sage woke up and went tearing through the room in the dark, heading out the door. Stepping on Maverys head in the process! Guess she decided she might catch Santa, not sure! At that point we let Sage & Mavery both sleep with us. (HA! sleep?) Then at 430 Sawyer could take it no more and continued to ask every 15 minutes if we could get up yet. Oh the joy of Christmas morning! I am reminded of why Christmas Day is my very favorite nap day of the year!
