We're having a pretty low-key Christmas this year. The shopping is done and the wrapping almost (just waiting on another package to arrive from Amazon today). It will be just the four of us most of the day, and my family will arrive in the evening.
There are still some things I'd like to get done so I can have a relaxing Christmas. I like to start holidays with a clean house. I also like to get some of the food prep done ahead of time so we can enjoy nice meals but still spend time together.
So today and tomorrow, I'll be washing and folding insane amounts of laundry (I'm always behind), trying to keep the house tidy so yesterday's work isn't wasted, and preparing the guest room for my family. Also, the fun part, I'll be doing some prep cooking and one more Christmas craft with Red Chief.
Christmas Eve evening, we should be all set to enjoy a warm dinner, talk about Christ's birth, and fill up the stockings after the little ones are asleep.
