mine are 13,11,9 & 8 and they got up at 9am. The 11 yo said he woke at 5am saw a present on his bed and went back to sleep.
none of them opened anything without asking us first.
we then got dressed then proceeded to cover the floor in little bits of paper. grin

We didn't do too badly, 7.45.

stinkymonkey Fri 26-Dec-08 11:19:56

3.30am. Urgh.
They opened stockings, I turned light off at 4am & went back to bed. Discovered later that the little blighters turned light back on & stayed up playing for a while. We all got up properly at 7.30am, but DS was too tired to function for most of the day.

Well we had the great Xmas present of a 9am start! (DS 4 and 2).

So great after years of 5.30am starts (on a normal day that is!).

Nemostwonderfultimeoftheyear Fri 26-Dec-08 11:21:12

5 am then ds sat talking to himself in his room until I relented at 6am that we would get up

Elk Fri 26-Dec-08 11:24:56

dds, 3 and 5 . We got up at 7.20am.
First sound at 6.50 was dd1 saying 'do you think we can open them. The presents were still unopened when we put them out of their misery 1/2 an hour later.

PurplePillowsInSantasBed Fri 26-Dec-08 11:28:27

DD first woke at 5:30, told to go back to sleep,

Then 6:30, again told to go back to sleep,

Finally gave up at 7am but had a brilliant day anyway gringringrin

My DP woke me up at 6am to ask if Santa had been! Last year with no baby (LO due in March), feel I need to set some boundaries! wink

She came in at 7:30 and told us she was awake. she then went to wait her in bedroom and came back an hour later to see if we
were getting up.

ds2 (2.11y) woke up around 6.30am, which is normal - but I didn't mention Christmas and just brought him in bed with me and had a cuddle.
ds1 (6.3y) woke at 7.30am (again normal) and came in with his pillowcase "Santa has been and my pillowcase is full to bursting".
ds2 then cried "Father Christmas not come to me", ran in to his bedroom and saw his pillowcase.
Cue wrapping unfrenzy

4.48-'I got a stocking mummy'. I got up and went for a pee. DD1-9 and DD2-4 sat on bed eating chocolate and rummaging in stockings. Told them it wasn't morning yet. DD1 went back to bed and slept. DD2 appeared at my bedside periodically-every 20mins or so, to ask if it was morning yet and eventually we all got up at 8.30. DD3 slept through it all in my bed and had to be woken up to open her stocking.grin

dd1 got up at 12.30 to be sick as she ate so much chocolate at the xmas eve party. about 6 in the end though, we had to wake dd2 up at about 8am as I was desperate to see her.

6.15am to get their santa sacks from outside of their bedroom doors. Both went into DS2's bedroom to play on the xbox for a while until Grandma and Grandad opened their door about 6.45 and they got into bed with them for a bit.

We all went down just after 7.00am, kids kindly waited patiently whilst I made coffee/tea for the adults and then they opened their prezzies.

DS1 took ages to open every one, examine, then put the paper into the bin liner. DS2 worked through his in less than 5 mins leaving a trail of destruction behind him with paper etc.
