We started off the Christmas season with the Heidelberg Christmas market on Thanksgiving day. It was pretty magical. We think most Christmas markets are similar, but this was a great way to start off the season! We did try Kinder punch (Warm grape juice) which is the alternative to hot wine. We thought it was pretty nasty, but some people must love it...
Funny boy. He would take a good 5 minutes just putting the icing on.
We did our annual Christmas crackers, played Christmas bingo, and watched a nativity video of our primary kids. Tyler ended up having a complete melt down and falling asleep in my arms. Poor guy, it was a really long day.
Christmas morning was much happier! I love watching the pure excitement in the kids' faces coming down the stairs. I love Christmas!
Zach eventually woke up to join the festivities. He was most excited about his new pack of diapers from Santa. How did Santa know?!
The aftermath. We were all sleeping like babies by the end of the day.
