    tough one leeanne, i can see your dilemma. i think i'd probably put it all out for your children if i'm honest, as i am sure your step children will understand hon, and that way your children can see what they've got in full :)

    our routine Christmas morning is we all get up, and maddi will get into bed with granddad, have her milk and a play, whilst me mum and james go and turn the lights on, sort out the cups of tea and wake gramps up. once we're set up, dad will bring maddi down and we'll be ready with the camera for her reaction of the presents!
    then we shall open some presents, then stop for breakfast, then probably some more gifts. then we all go to get ready and me and mum start dinner :D

    Our routine is : get up whenever the boys wake usually between 6-7. Myself or OH will always go downstairs to see if Santa has been, cant let the kids go down incase he is still doing his thing :) (one year we pretended he was still there and it was so exciting for Daniel, we tucked him into bed with us and waited until we heard the bells, which happened while daddy went to the toilet !!, cant wait to do it with Dec :)) then we will make out beds ( I cant rest knowing the beds are messy ) We will go down the stairs, youngest always gets to go first. Then once we get into the living room it is just a battle ground :) when all pressies have been opened I will start brekkie. Mum and Dad usually call to see what Santa has left us, then we will go visiting for a little, then home to relax and have dinner. :)

    hmm this is our first Christmas where we're not in Texas so most will be played by ear but we'll get up with Hannah and feed her first (she's a crank until she's eaten :rofl:), have breakfast ourselves and let her open her stocking and than dive into the gifts :lol:

    We wake up and one of us hides next to the tree and the other gets the boys up so the one by the tree can get pics of how they look when they first see it all. Then the boys open stockings. Then we start on gifts. After they are done we open a few toys up for them and then clean up the mess and Mark and I make a big breakfast. After that we will get everyone ready for family to start arriving at 1pm to have dinner later on with us

    I dont know how it will go this year because Daisy is older! :yipee: it used to be Gemma would open stocking then we would all get up and open pressies then breakfast.

    But we will probably get up at 6ish with Daisy, stockings, some pressies then OHs mum is coming for breakfast so we will open the rest of the kids pressies after that. :yipee:

    Its our first Xmas morning together - so we will be forging our traditions this year! We probably will open our stockings and presents in bed with the cats rolling about in the wrapping paper, before getting ready to drive out to the in-laws. No doubt there will be cups of tea and chocolate coins involved before we go anywhere too xxx
