Due to our busy schedules leading up to Christmas we were still doing some shopping on the 24th but managed to be home at a decent time for our Night Before Christmas traditions. Owen is so into Santa and the reindeer this year, it was really exciting. After the kids were in bed, Adrian and I spent the night wrapping presents. We had planned on doing it the night before, but poor Adrian got the flu and was in no condition to be wrapping.
