I asked my husband this morning if it's weird that neither one of us are opening presents on Christmas Day. This is because I got him early presents for both his birthday (he's a December baby!) and Christmas, which is a new office desk and a medicine ball. Jacob won't be opening a present from us either, nor will Santa be sending him one because we still haven't decided whether or not we will tell him about Santa. We got him a Little Tikes 2n1 Snug Ride Swing and it came in early this week. And for me, Oscar got me what I wanted, which is a groupon for Cuzo worth one bag from the store. Sadly, I won't be able to model my new bag until New Year's because I can only redeem my voucher on the 26th.

We didn't bother to wrap these gifts because they would be used immediately, and we have this weird thinking, "Why wait until Christmas?". Okay, we're definitely weird. But I really do love opening presents on Christmas Day! I grew up as the baby of the famliy, and boy did I get a lot of presents! But now that I'm older, and a Mom (!), I don't get gifts that often anymore. Maybe it comes with being a parent, that the gift receiving gets passed on to your child who will get tons of gifts now instead of you. Or maybe finding the perfect present for an adult gets harder every year that it's easier to shop for toys?

So before we disappear into the holiday season, I just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
