The boys want and need to eat before we head to my in-laws to open gifts with them, but we also have to get ready and open our own family gifts before we leave. I want to do something special for breakfast, but making a gourmet breakfast Christmas morning seems daunting. And our Christmas Eve is full as well so making something like a breakfast casserole ahead of time seems a little stressful too.
SO, we decided on cinnamon rolls.
Like the kind from the can.
I know. You're impressed. :)
But the boys love it! After I cook them, I pop a candle in the middle and we sing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus. They get their little bellies full and we continue on with our morning. I love that this fun little tradition helps us focus on the true meaning of Christmas in the midst of the craziness of Christmas morning and doesn't stress me out more (as long as I remember to pre-heat the oven!)

What do you do Christmas morning to help focus on Christ?
