Mornings tend to be rushed at our house, all 7 of them. We rarely get the chance to sit down as a family to enjoy breakfast.
During this hectic Christmas season, take a lazy morning and enjoy pancakes (while in your pj’s) for breakfast.
Also, use your holiday plates, linens, and serving dishes and play Christmas music softly in the background. My girls were so excited to use the Christmas stuff that my oldest volunteered to set the table without being asked and that rarely happens.
While eating we took turns finishing the following statements:
- I hope you know…
- I’m really glad…
- I’ve been thinking…
- I have noticed…
We had the most delightful breakfast. It was relaxing. We talked as a family. We laughed as a family. We celebrated the spirit of the season as a family.
And thankfully, we cleaned up as a family too!
What special family activities do you have planned this season? Please let us know in the comments.
