We normally visit family for Christmas so this year was pretty different for us. We got started by making treats a couple days early. I made a list of all the Christmas food I wanted and bought the ingredients. It ended up being way too much food for us. We only even made about 3/4 of it, so I'll be making the rest once we finish eating the left overs. I wanted to include the kids so each one got to help with one dessert. It worked out pretty well that way.
The rest of the day we played on the beach and played around the house. I had a cold and it got pretty bad on Christmas so I was worn out by 1pm. I think I enjoyed the dinner leftovers more than the actual meal.
