In our home Christmas Morning is when gifts are opened. The children are allowed to open their stockings (to buy Mum and Dad some time) at a specified time and not before. :) In past years we have had to wake Emma up (she is one that needs her sleep)...so we were not prepared for what transpired this year!
Emma does not have a digital clock in her room...she was excited (obviously)...and was awake in the wee hours of the morning. When her Daddy found her it was 4:40 AM and she had opened everything in her stocking and was roaming the house wondering why no one else was up! Apparently she had turned on all the Christmas lights in the house ~ tree and all. She was told it was NOT morning yet and was tucked back into bed. THAT's where we found her...still asleep when the rest of the house was stirring just after 8:00! A great Christmas memory for sure!
This picture of Emma was taken by her big brother Calvin ~ she was thrilled with her victorian doll carriage...the only thing she really wanted. :)
