Not a normal family...

I don't know about everyone else, but when I was a kid, I couldn't wait to wake up and see what Santa brought. My sister and I would wake up around 3 AM and talk and play Barbies until we were allowed to holler to my mom "Is it time to get up yet?". That was usually around 6 AM. We'd be so excited, we couldn't sleep!

My house now on Christmas morning: I lay awake in bed from 4 AM until about 8 or 8:30 when I finally can't stand it anymore. I get up and go wake up the kid, then the husband so we can finally open presents.

What's wrong with my family???? Why don't they wake up extra early and can't wait? Why is it that every Christmas since my kid was born he sleeps in until I wake him up, and he isn't chomping at the bit to go see what Santa brought???

My family isn't NORMAL!!!!

I need my sister to come sleep over and play Barbies with me until they wake up!

My family isn't normal either. Ryan and Maren both woke up after 10 am, so we didn't even have Chrstimas morning until 11:30. I'm like you, we'd always get up at 6 am as kids. Crazy! Hope you had a good holiday.
