Christmas Eve Game Night Fun!

I admit I’m the gal who always plans a ton of stuff I want my family to do together for the holidays, and you know what? We hardly ever do any of it! So, this year I decided we’re keeping Christmas Eve simple. We’re going to have a Christmas Eve game night, just the 4 of us.

We’ll bake cookies for Santa, play board games, read the Christmas story, and hopefully have a much easier time getting to bed than in past years. Yeah, right. My high anxiety ADHD child does NOT do well with Christmas Eve sleep. It doesn’t help that we are “expected” to be at 3 different family functions at the same time on Christmas Eve. We usually pop into each one long enough for my children to add another dose of sugary treats and open presents. Then we listen to everyone complain that we have to leave for the next family gathering, all the while I’m stressed to the nines and trying to get out the door before my phone starts ringing to remind me we’re late to the next one!

NOPE. NOT THIS YEAR.

I’m turning the phone off. I’m pulling out the fuzzy Christmas blankets and cozy socks. I’m making a batch of hot chocolate, we’re baking those cookies for Santa and we’re going to play Qwirkle until the kids can’t keep their eyes open!
