I have finally managed to do it! This year, I successfully reduced both the number of gifts and the amount of money that we spent on Christmas. The result has been even better than I anticipated! We have spent the entire Christmas day, enjoying some quiet time and new activities. The kids are not fighting and even more surprising is the fact that I have not heard one single time “I’m bored or Is this all we are getting for Christmas.”
The big girls got 6 presents under the tree!
The little kids got 5 gifts under the tree and one big gift from Santa
You only turn 11 once in your lifetime and if you are a middle child you deserve at least a two day celebration! One of our family’s birthday traditions is the birthday person gets to pick out a restaurant to eat at. Kendall chose “Red Robin” We were joined by lots of friends to make it an even bigger celebration!
