My true love gave to me ~ Sleeping under the Christmas Tree.
This is another one of my children's favourite traditions. As soon as the tree goes up they ask when can they sleep under it. As we still have school for about 2 weeks after the tree goes up they ask every day and I say 'not until school holidays!'
So they were excited when yesterday's Advent activity was sleep under the tree. However this time The Mr and I joined them too. I think I've only done it once before. Usually we leave it to the kids to sweat it out next to the tree while we enjoy the noisy air conditioning in our room.
It was a sweet (yet crazy) evening of Uno games, jumping, watching a little tv, reading christmas books and just staring at our lovely tree.
Having matresses spread on all available floor space just brings the kid out in you. It was very relaxing just to laze around, roll around, jump around with the kids. And lucky for them they got to stay up an hour or two past bedtime!
As with everything. I should do it more often. Sleepovers are so fun.
