There are 2 magical elves that visit the kids from Dec 1 to Dec 24. When the kids wake up on Christmas Eve morning they will have found a note explaining that the elves had to go back to the North Pole to help Santa get ready for his big night and a present (new PJs) under their tree in their bedroom. Later in the day we will let the kids open their gift from each other (a toy) and open one gift from their grandmom. We spend the day relaxing and watching Christmas shows/movies. I'll spend part of the day getting the food ready for the next day. Through out the day the kids will check on Santa's location via Norad.
After dinner we wait for Santa to come around the neighborhood on the local firetruck. The kids know that this not the REAL Santa but one of his helpers making sure the kids are behaving and getting ready. Then it's bath time and putting on their new PJ's. We will all relax in the living room and watch Polar Express and or another Christmas movie. We will munch on homemade Christmas cookies and drink hot chocolate. Right before bed time the kids will check Norad to see where Santa is and then get his milk and cookies out.
We tuck the kids into bed and read then The Christmas Story and Twas the Night Before Christmas.
Hubby and I will relax some more and watch another Christmas movie. Right before we got to bed "Santa" makes his visit. Before he leaves our house he will place a gift fro each kid under the Christmas Tree in their bedroom.
It's off to bed for us....
