with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
Some friends of ours have turkey dinner and open presents on Christmas Eve - it stems from their European heritage - and others open everything on Christmas Day. We give the kids one present on Christmas Eve, based on my husband’s and my parallel experiences growing up. The present is always (ALWAYS) new pajamas and I hope that tradition carries on to infinity. Wearing cozy new jammies while crawling into bed to wait for Christmas morning is a huge part of the Christmas magic for me.
My husband and I started our own tradition when we had our first Christmas as parents. We fire the kid ((s) now) into bed, put on Christmas music, and exchange presents. It’s a date night in, complete with pretty lights and gifts and it’s a highlight of every year.
When do you open presents?
